Short Summary created by jackill,  31 Aug 2011
Park at G014 015 A at the side of the forest track. There is an area of open hillside here bounded on either side by forest which gives a clear view to the summit of Buckoogh. There is a small area of nuisance clearfell to cross before the easy going of the open hillside. Climb parallel to the forest boundary following a small stream, aiming for the rim of the small corrie lough backed by steep slopes. From the south end of the lough climb steeply above the lough, pick up a fenceline and follow towards the summit along the edge of the corrie.The broad summit area is really unpleasant and muddy.
