Climbed 20.11.05, parking at layby next to Lough Barra (936124) on the beautifully scenic R254. I followed a track on the other side of the road to the shore of Lough Barra and walked its sandy shore to the mouth of the River Barra, having to follow it inland to find a crossing point on one of its turns. There is some pretty wet ground to cross before the ground turns rockier as begin to climb. Even from here there are breathtaking views across the valley to Slieve Snaght and her companions. As gained height the line of the Bluestacks came into view behind Aghla Mountain, with the higher tops capped in cloud. There is a cairn at the top and the views extend to Errigal, Macknoght and the Aghlas - beyond the immediate and imposing line of hills from Dooish to Slieve Snaght. Head nearly due N for another small small cairn with views across the deep valley below which extends to the head of Glenveagh, with glimpes of the lake. Drop down NE along the steep face of Moylenanav where the ground is again pretty wet, can eventually drop off the hill to acess the road and follow it for 30 minutes back to the layby beside Lough Barra. I first saw this hill from across the valley on the Bingorms and it looked a good hill, it lived up to those thoughts and provided a few hours of walking along lough, river and hill, with stunning views on a fantastic day with clear blue skies - what more could you ask for?
