Parked on the NE of Kylemore Lough (just where the road around the lake turns sharply south east) where you'll find space enough for about 3/4 cars. About 30 metres back along the road you'll find a wooden pallet doubling as a gate which allows access into a grassy field. From here you've a 1.5k walk to the NW up a gently rising slope until you reach the saddle between Doughruagh and Garraun South Top. From here the gradient steepens sharply, becoming much rockier as you ascend. The top is a broad rocky expanse speckled with pools which could easily double as an alien planet in a sci-fi movie! A cairn marks the highest point at the western end and on the day I stood there the views of the Bens, Maamturks, Atlantic coastline etc etc were indescribably beautiful. Round trip took me 3 hours, though I could easily have lingered over the view for another 12 hours! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/400/comment/3158/
