In a note on the townland of Dergroagh, James O'Kane says that it is sometimes called Cúl Gáigín. He also records the name Sruthán an Chut Chaoil in Dergroagh, which may relate to the same cleft feature from which Gáigín is named (JOK).   Gaugin Mountain is the 378th highest summit in Ireland.

Big views from the small area of the summit that is flattish.

The summit area has views in many directions such as towards the Derryveaghs, the rest of the Bluestacks and the Inishowen Penisula.

Perhaps for the reason given by murphysw it also has a magnificent cairn, seen here in front of a skyline with some of the best loved summits of Donegal including (l to r) Slieve Snaght (Derryveagh), Errigal and to the right of the cairn, Muckish.
