Approach from the North West
Short Summary created by simon3  5 May 2011
There is a large space to park on the R251 at approx B980 226 A, although it leaves your car quite exposed (to vandals/thieves etc). Alternatively drive a little along the track indicated on the map to B983 228 B where there is space for one car. This spot has unfortunately been used in the past to dump the odd mattress or fridge, but your car cannot be seen from the road. Head directly across the boggy terrain towards the SE, (clambering with difficulty over the deer fence), and then climb up one of the very steep gullies - the one to the right is probably the easier at point B993 222 C . After this muscle-wrecker, it is about 350m to the summit. Several possibilities for the actual top seem to present themselves, particularly a giant, flat topped boulder, but after scouting around a small pile of stones can be seen which appears to be the highest point. From there you can choose to retrace your steps or continue on to Dooish SE Top and then Dooish, descending through the valley to the NE of Dooish, although be warned the terrain here is in parts steep, very uneven and speckled with boulders.

(see Dooish for previous part of walk). There is a drop of some 200m down from the summit of Dooish to reach Lough Aleahan which lies in the col before Saggartnadooish. This rocks above the lough are a beautiful place to stop and spend some time eating lunch, with waters of the lough lapping gently in a cold N breeze. The whole plateau reminds me very much of the Bluestacks with its water, rock, bog and isolation combining to give a rugged but captivating sense to the walker. It is a short and undemanding climb to the summit beyound the Lough. The top has several large boulders perched strikingly on thier own. There are fantastic views blocked only by the bulk of Dooish to the SW - in particular across to the Aglas and Muckish. I dropped down S into the valley for the climb up to the SE Top of Dooish (see for final part of walk). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/454/comment/1667/

Saggartnadooish

I climbed Saggartnadooish on 2 May 2010 as the last top in a round which had included Dooish, Dooish SE Top and Saggartnadooish E Top. From the top of Saggartnadooish E Top we headed down to the coll below Saggartnadooish B9970021600 D before climbing up the rocky slope to the flat stony top. Once there the highest point was not immediately recognisable and a number of rocky prominences could well vie for that distinction. So once there walk around, as we did and decide for yourself ! or simply stick to the MV co-ordinates. The views from this top are only obstructed to the SW by the bulk of Dooish otherwise you can see across to the Aglas and Muckish, N to Innishowen, NE to the Sperrins and S over Glenveigh. On leaving the summit we went down SW to cross the outlet stream from the N of Lough Aleahan B9880021600 E and then NW down the hillside, Initially we went through and around some rocky outcrops, before continuing down over grass and some heather to the Deer Fence and then the R251 and our parking spot B9694421823 F. For details of the full circuit see also my comments on Dooish SE Top and Saggartnadooish E Top. Clearly for anyone interested in only climbing Saggartnadooish the above route could be used for a quick climb up and down the hill., Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/454/comment/4722/

Saggartnadoosih (See Dooish for first part of walk). From Dooish summit it is a fairly long but relatively easy drop over rocky & grass covered terrain on the slopes with small peat hags to be negotiated when you reach the valley floor, more or less parallel with Lough Aleahan. Took route to right of loch. Fairly short climb to summit area. Here it is difficult to discern the true summit. In the end I took two readings about 25 metres apart at IB99110 21700 G & IB99133 21664 H - and came up with the same height 508m – seven more than OS map suggests. As with Dooish the views from the summit area were quite awesome in the afternoon sunshine which helped the countryside present itself in all its splendour. Although Dooish and it’s southeast top do block scenery to the south/southwest. My next target was the aforementioned Southeast Top which I had decided to leave until I turned for home after Saggartnadooish. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/454/comment/2343/
