Wonderful summit and breathtaking scenery
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  30 May 2016
Parking for 2/3 cars next to a bridge over the Owengarr River at point L842 652 A, just to the south of Fin Lough. Cross the bridge to a lane leading up to a farmhouse, This farmhouse has previously been described as deserted but seems to be occupied now, and access along this lane is uncertain. Instead, just across the cattle grid at the start of the lane there is an opening into a field, and access may be made via this. Cross the field and hummock and you will come to a rocky part of the river where you can cross easily enough. From there turn NW and continue for 1.5km. The terrain on the lower slopes is quite difficult - long grasses, reeds and spongy in late May. Eventually this eases around 200m elevation. Ascent is steep but not overly so. Reach the eastern spur around point L832 671 B. Turn west for 1km then veer SWW for a further 8oom to reach the summit, which is marked by a pile of stones. Allow almost 3 hours from car to summit.

Great care is required desending BLET via SE Spur
by Daithic  29 Apr 2014
Great days hike in Mweelrea mountains starting from Doo Lough north using ramp. Pic shows memorial plaque and elevated view of The Ramp, taken near BLET. Also Lugmore peaks (left) & Ben Bury (right). Great care is required descending BLET via SE Spur (pretty steep in places) to southern Doo Lough. Dry conditions & walking poles recommended. There is a mapped meandering trail thats tricky to follow, stray at your peril. This Leads to a narrow foot bridge on the Owengarr river between Fin Lough & Doo Lough belonging to PRIVATE property rental cottages. 4moreC https://flic.kr/s/aHsjXHdwpM Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/51/comment/16041/

I reached the East top as the last of the five separate tops making up Mweelrea, dropping from Ben Lugmore on a defined track with nothingness just to my left with the drop into the corrie and a river impossibly far below. Ben Creggan and Ben Gorm disappear as drop to the col with the E top, from here it is a short rise to a broad grassy area and a small cairn on the East Top - I took some time to relax here in the strong sunshine. Again there are big views to match this big hill - to the Bens and Mamturks - to Achill Island - amazing views along the back wall of the corrie with peaks rising sharply and along the sheer side of the E top towards Doo Lough. As walk easily along the broad top there is a gentle desent and the best views are to Ben Creggan, Ben Gorm and Barraclashcarne, all across Doo Lough. The further i moved along the top here the fuller and more impressive the views of the corrie became, but there was strong competition from the hills across Doo Lough. There are a couple of little upright stones at the end of the top before start dropping down. I didn't drop straight down the obvious shoulder heading N for Doo Lough but a little further to the E - this was pretty steep with all sorts of rock and grass and i did contour around towards the shoulder anyway. The entire descent is pretty unrelenting and there are some quite steep parts towards the bottom which need care, before coming back to the shores of the lough where i filled my hat with water again to try and cool down. A short walk brought me back to the car but still looking back up towards where i had been for the last 6 or 7 hours. Without a doubt one of the best days walking i have yet had the pleasure to experience in Ireland. There were very few people about on the mountain and no one else on the tops of Ben Lugmore - those that were about just seemed to be interested in the top of Mweelrea, they just don't know what else they could ahve experienced for little extra effort!

I did this as a first stop on the Mweelrea circuit (the route is well described on those pages). A couple of comments: when heading south from Lough Doo, do yourself a favor and head south for 15 minutes. I took too early of an ascent and was rewarded with a steep, gentle scramble. I completely missed the grassy ramp. Additionally, the lot across from Lough Doo was occupied by fisherpeople (to be PC), so I asked for an received permission to park at the Delphi Adventure Centre. There are also some lay-bys along R335 you can use. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/51/comment/1775/

Starting from the Delphi Adventure Centre, I walked north up the road (towards Doolough) for about 500 meters, then taking a track left, just before a bridge. Past a seemingly deserted farmhouse, I hopped over the river and continued north over rough ground. Facing me were three south-easterly spurs of Ben Lugmore, the middle of which looked to be the easiest.
A sweaty ascent ensued. Eventually this spur conjoins with the more rugged easterly spur, and the terrain steepens before attaining the summit ridge. In between breaks in the cloud you get to see the big drop into the northern coum - it's a long way down to the valley floor. And great views east, towards the Sheefry and Ben Gorm hills. After 10 minutes or so, the ridge broadens, and the summit (small heap of stones) is reached. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/51/comment/2467/

A mighty spur.
