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.

Climbed Slieve Croob from Drumkerragh Forest. This photo shows the eastern side of the mountain from the road at Drumkerragh Forest. The view of the Mournes is impressive from the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/388/comment/1975/
