A small top often by-passed
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  15 Oct 2013
From the N56 follow the L1845 to Letterbarra and then go north on a minor road to it's end at G8865988705 A near a farm and park a short way beyond the end of the tarred surface. Cross a locked gate and follow the good stone and gravel track initially downhill and then steeply up NE for 1.5km to G8963289826 B where a track leads off left. Follow it up to it's end at G894901 C and then head up N across the moorland to gain the ridge and the small but distinctive top some 800 metres along. The high point is marked by a small cairn G8957890901 D. Views NE are blocked by the nearby bulk of Silver Hill but Lavagh More and Croaghgorm can be seen to the E while S over Donegal Bay are the Dartrys and the mountains of SW Donegal. Distance up and back 6km. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/529/comment/5288/

Baggers spot
by simon3  5 Oct 2013
Cullaghcro is a rough covered pimple of a summit SW of Silver Hill. It has views of the wind turbines near Carnaween. Definitely a baggers peak, though not particularly hard to get to if you are in the area.

Worth Adding To Multi-Summit Walk
by Aidy  15 Feb 2016
My third summit of the day after Binnasruell and Silver Hill, and after months of virtual inactivity over a very wet few months, it had been a harder walk than I'd expected over already difficult ground left sodden over the previous prolonged rains. It had been freezing cold too regardless of the sunny day. Despite it all, it was exhilarating to be out again, and the weather, with sun breaking through occasional clouds, showed the landscape at its best. Cullaghacro was also easy to take in on the way back to the car (see comment for Binnasruell for starting point), and it was a short drop down from Silver Hill, and an even shorter climb up to the summit marked by a small cairn. My feet were so wet at this stage that I was impervious to the boggy ground, and there was no point in skirting pools - straight through now as I couldn't get any wetter. As on the earlier summits, nothing could dampen my spirits, and Cullaghacro opened up fresh views despite its small stature. It was then another boggy stretch to the windmills below, where I could take advantage of the access road, glad of the dry, even ground for a spell. I stayed on it for a short distance before heading almost directly south up on the Binnasruell ridge again, then descending to the car with its welcome heater. Great to be back in the mountains.
