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.

Slieve Croob, what can you say really, one of the best 360 degree panoramic to be had anywhere that is sadly spoilt by the 3 or 4 huge transmitters plunked on top of it! This is an example of making a mountain top too accessible. The car park is set right at the foot of Croob and is easy to find, and leading from there to the summit is a tarmac road. It is mainly an access road for the communications equipment at the summit and so at least does not have much by the way of traffic, but none the less there is no feeling of wilderness to be had here. On the day we were there (as you can see from the pic) the weather was not great and this at least added a sense of elemental nature. The view at the top though is genuinely great in spite of the man made adornments. Even with the weather I could see the Mournes, Sperrins, most of Loch Neagh, most of Strangford and the Ards peninsula, H&W and Scrabo tower. Where else can claim such as great array of views??
