The River Lagan rises on the northern slopes of Slieve Croob. The three parishes of Magherahamlet, Kilmegan and Drumgooland converge on the summit, which has excellent panoramic views, including a particularly fine view of the northern peaks in the Mourne Mountains. Until the mid-20th century, there was a tradition of climbing the mountain on Blaeberry Sunday at the end of July or beginning of August. This is clearly a survival of a Lughnasa tradition [see MacNeill, 155-56]. The summit cairn is locally known as the Twelve Cairns, but this seems to be a relatively modern name arising from damage causing the break-up of a single cairn into several smaller heaps.   Slieve Croob is the 462nd highest summit in Ireland. Slieve Croob is the most northerly summit in the Mourne Mountains area.

What a fabulous view from the summit.

I love this mountain very much indeed. My father often took me there on bird watching missions when I was a teenager (how the years fly by) I think the army had control of the area around the summit at the time, maybe communications. ... Any hows, as a result it was some time before I was actually able to climb to the true summit. Took my motorcycle to the little car parking area and walked up the well maintained little 'track' to the radio masts. Then it is a matter of crossing over a fence and clambering up to the ancient cairn on the true summit itself. The views of 'drumlin country' and the mighty Mournes range is very captivating indeed. It would be a much better idea to hike the Dromara / Finnis village / Dree hill route. I would be unsure about parking security on the mountain car park. Always rid your vehicle of anything tempting to potential thieves. Make sure that it is immediately obvious that your car is empty. I must go up during Spring time with my camera / tripod to photograph the Mournes from the summit. Preferably during a Spring evening. Cant wait come to think of it.

Beautiful mountain and fabulous view.

p.s. I have recently hiked from Dromara village to the summit of Slieve Croob and can recommend this most sincerely. Do watch out for traffic though. A 'sidewalk' can be adhered to for some of the hike. Not entirely sure about parking security in Dromara. That said, there is a small car park. Same anywhere I guess. Enjoy!
