This visualisation of Black Mountain also shows the rest of the high ground on the Cooley Peninsula. (It doesn’t show the roads running over the top or the masts though).

Claude Wall {Mountaineering in Ireland] calls this area the Cuailgne Mountains. He described a fine walk from Narrow Water ‘.. over Anglesey (1,353), Clermont (1,465), Clermont Carn [Black Mtn](1.674) and Carnavaddy (1,568) “the carn of the hound,” reputed burial place of Bran, the mastiff of Fionn MacCumhaill, to the Windy Gap.'
