Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

This is the higher of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further south, facing Slieve Binnian across the Silent Valley. This peak is east of Hare's Gap. On the western flanks is a huge granite boulder with a scooped-out face so that it resembles a giant's seat (David Kirk, 'The Mountains of Mourne - A Celebration of a Place Apart', p. 121).   Slievenaglogh is the 323rd highest summit in Ireland.

Eastern Mournes Hike
by hbowman1  18 Sep 2011
I climbed this mountain yesterday as part of an A to B circuit walk. Starting off from Meelmore Lodge, we headed toward Slieve Meelmore via Spellack. The path is steep in places but upon summitting Spellack, very fine views opened up towards the Hares Gap and eastern Mournes. We continued toward the summit of Meelmore and then descended to the saddle between Bernagh and Meelmore. After lunch we followed a path around Bernagh to the Hares Gap. After a short break, we followed the Mourne wall towards Commedagh, passing Slievenaglogh and Slieve Corragh en route. Nice views were to be had of Bernagh, Binnian, Lamagan, Cove, Beg, Ben Crom, Doan, Muck and Slieve Croob. Upon summitting Commedagh we descended the ridge towards Slievenamaddy via Shanslieve. I would not attempt this in poor visibility as the gradient is steep in places. However, in good conditions, I would strongly recommend this walk. The view towards Newcastle and Murlough bay from Shanslieve, I think, is one of the best in the Mournes. We continued our descent towards Slievenamaddy before travering through Donard Forest, finishing in Donard car park. The full walk is 14km and took 6.75 hours. Highlights of this walk would include the views from Spellack towards Hares Gap, views from Slieve Corragh of Ben Crom reservoir, the views near Commedagh of Cascade River Valley and, above all, views of Newcastle from Shanslieve. The last section of Commedagh, Shanslieve and Slievenamaddy also offers a very nice alternative to the traditional Glen River valley. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/6517/
