This photo taken on a misty day in May shows Doughruagh from the NE. Traversing the top of Doughruagh is an exercise in winding around rocky knolls of sparsely vegetated rock mixed with ponds. Although a short distance, walking from east to west in mist to find the top (which has a collection of rusty metalwork) is a navigation challenge.
The lake below the summit is Knappagh Lough. The three smaller lakes just over the right flank of Doughruagh are in the area of Currywongan, with a highest point of 273m. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/400/comment/777/
