A tale of two summits
by Harry Goodman  9 Jun 2012
On leaving the summit of Staghall Mt. I headed down NNE to pass the left (W) side of L Naweeloge, a substantial expanse of water nestled between Staghall and Croaghnasaggart (Cruach na Sagart) my third top in a round of four on 4 June 2012. (For details of the previous part of the route see my comments on Staghall Mt.) Although the top is shown on the OSi sheet 6 as lying to the E end of the hill at 478m the mv listed top is some 800m further to the W within a 480m ring contour B9677619050 A but is unmarked. When there I noticed, some 1k further W, the cairn on Maumlack and, as I had not been on that hill for over twenty years, found myself drawn to pay it a visit by extending my planned route for the day by going out and back. On my return to Croaghnasaggart I continued ENE over it's hummocky, peat hagged flat top, passing a couple of tiny loughs on the way, to reach the high point shown on the OSi sheet Pt. 478. As with the slightly higher W top it was not marked in any way apart from the fact that it seemed to rest on a small triangular shaped hummock of grass/heather B9755519118 B. In common with nearby Staghall Mt.Croaghnasaggart has a large, mainly flat, peat hagged and rocky plateau. Indeed my best view of it was coming back across from Maumlack where there is at least an impression of some, all be it, modest height. This said the views were excellent with Errigal, Slieve Snaght and Dooish close at hand in a 360 degree sweep. From the E top I went down SW past the E side of L Naweeloge B975183 C before climbing up across the flat shoulder of Stagall Mt and then continuing down a good gentle grassy spur. On the way down I saw several deer. Further down the ground became more uneven until I reached the high bank above the Alteann Burn at around B974169 D. I then turned left (SE) and followed the high bank above the stream down, initially on a gentle gradient, and then at B9750516862 E, down sharply to where it met a stream flowing down to Lough Beagh. Once across the stream I went up a grassy bank to the Glenveagh National Park track where I turned right and followed it up to the R254. Another right turn along the road soon had me back at my start point for the day. Clearly my descent route from Croaghnasaggart could be used as a route up and down either Staghall Mt or Croaghnasaggart or both. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/510/comment/6852/

Having reached the summit of Cró an Locháin (see for second leg of walk) I decided to bag Croaghnasaggart too, necessitating another short detour passing western edge of a picturesque Loch Naweeloge on way to indistinct summit. Difficult to establish exact top but took reading of 477m at what appeared to be the highest point, although there are a couple of other heights on the broad summit area which might equally lay claim to being the real summit. Next stop was Dooish by way of Ednadooish (see for continuing legs of walk). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/510/comment/2888/
