Longish but relatively easy trek
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  28 May 2012
Turn off the N59 at Bunnahowna Bridge (857 965 A) and continue up narrow road for 500m until you reach a gate, which is part of an official Greenway walking trail. Go through gate and continue for about 500m, where the trail branches to the left, but also deteriorates in quality – it is driveable only with caution. Eventually this track peters out but there is room to park and turn at the end. From this point continue directly north up the gently rising eastern side of Glennamaddoo valley for 3 km. The ground is generally firm in dry weather – a mixture of long grasses and heather and shouldn’t present too many obstacles. At point 865 008 B swing NW for 500m, which will take you to the small pile of stones that marks the summit, set amid an area of peat hags.

Claggan Mountain NE Top is the highest point of the ridge from the Mulrany area before you reach the Corranabinnias. Like the next small bump to its north east it's a scarp with a steep north facing side and a more gradual slope to the south and south east. Unlike many 500m summits in Ireland with low rates of visiting this place is deserving of more attention. The walk up from the Mulrany area with an unfolding coastline view on both sides and the mountainy northern views from this summit make the place deserving of more interest. It's on a good route to Corranabinnia.

For a couple of months in 2007, before the introduction of the 400m summits, this was the last summit in the list of 500m summits which had no comment.

A curiousity of the summit is that it is called the NE Top. The map marks Claggan summit as a point 2.2k SW.

Our photo shows the summit of Corranabinnia left and in cloud. Right just above the near ground is Anaffrin a continuation of the scarp that is Claggan Mtn NE. Dark and right of centre skyline is Bengorm NW Top (468m) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/452/comment/2704/
