Easy route using tracks
by wicklore  4 Jun 2010
This approach first takes you over nearby Glennagalliagh. Considering the amount of comments commenting about the boggy nature of these hills, this route is quite straightforward and mostly along tracks. Starting at R6395472575 E on Map 58, follow the access track 1.5kms up to the summit of Glennagalliagh. (For information – it’s possible to drive to the summit in jeep type vehicles as turf cutting takes place there). From the summit look north down into the saddle below Glennagalliagh. A white track carved out of the bog should be visible. This track leads for 1km up to the col between Cragnamurragh and Moylussa.

There are single strand wire fences in the vicinity of the summit of Glennagalliagh. These could be electric, although I did not see signs to this effect. There are signs however stating ‘Please use the Gate’. This gate is just next to the summit. Pass through the gate and head NE down to a small track a couple of hundred metres away. Note that it is also easy to duck under the single strand fence. Aim for R63781 74261 F where there is a gap in another potential electric fence giving access onto the white track leading up to Cragnamurragh. Follow this track and ascend 75 metres over 1km up to the col. From here turn left and follow a muddy, quadbike-churned track for about 1km to the trig pillar at the summit of Cragnamurragh at R62883 74950 G

A local walker told me that many people believe that Cragnamurragh is the highest point of Clare because there is a trig pillar on Cragnamurragh while there is none on nearby Moylussa. He said that the highest point in the county would surely have this pillar? I pointed out that it had to do with the Ordnance Survey and lines of sight etc but I didn’t convince him!

csd has described the views nicely in his comment, so I can only echo that there is a great expanse to the range of the views from the summit. To return simply retrace your steps to the col and the track back over Glennagalliagh. There is also an option to extend the walk easily to Moylussa. As highlighted by others, there is a wide track leading from the col up to Moylussa 1.5kms away. This track ranges from dry and passable to waterlogged and scary. It’s just a case of walking on the heather next to the track at the dodgy bits. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/401/comment/5854/
