Referred to as Sliabh cCarbatach in the Annals of the Four Masters (entry for 1567 AD). The element carbad/carb is found in a number of Irish place-names. Although carpat can mean a chariot in Old Irish, many of the places in question have boulders and this seems more likely to be the sense of such place-names in mountain areas.   Mullaghcarbatagh is the 511th highest summit in Ireland.

Climbed this on 13-09-08, possibly the best day of the last 3 months, meaning it was fairly soggy going! Parked up a small road in the area of Eden Back, just to east of Glensass Burn (H517932 E). From here the summit is almost due north. A rough track extends after the road ends but is best veering off this after a while as there is plenty of swampy reedy parts on the way up. The climb takes about a half hour if even and is rewarded with a well built cairn at the top which someone has taken the time to get right. More importantly was well impressed with the view. Was great visibility, could make out the scree runs on Errigal, inishowen mtns, binevenagh, benbradagh, mullaghcarn, bessy bell, cuilcagh (which i was most impressed with as id never picked a clear enough day before to see it from the sperrins) and bluestacks.
Just below the summit was a flat area where fires had been lit and looked like a good spot for camping. Also quad tracks led away from here towards the forest on the west side of the mtn. Would probably approach from this way if climbing here again as the western slope appeared easier going. Would probably take the Bradkeel road and follow the forest track as far as possible.
