Short Summary created by simon3, march-fixer  4 Oct 2012 The smallest of the hills at the NE end of the Derryveagh Range, gathered close by to the east of Dooish, with commanding views north, east and south.

It can be reached easily from the R251 via Saggartnadooish. There are a number of spots along here, like B96925 21779 (Point A) , to safely park a number of cars just off-road. The lower reaches of this approach can be quite boggy. There is a handy access track B98056 22602 (Point B) heading straight for Saggartnadooish and the peat workings which will bring you some of the way. The return trip should not take more than 2 hours.

The general area is untrammelled and exists in splendid isolation. Nothing seems to have changed here since the Ice Age, as evidenced by the enormous boulder deposited on the crown which, due to it's height, forms a most unusual, if not unique, summit. Its height was established with a surveying instrument.
Point A: B96925 21779 Point B: B98056 22602

A splendid boulder strewn hill top.
by Harry Goodman  9 Jul 2011 I climbed this hill on 2 May 2010 as part of a circuit which included Dooish, Dooish SE Top and Saggartnadooish. For the first part of the route see my comments on Dooish SE Top. My original plan was to go from Dooish SE Top directly to Saggartnadooish E Top by walking NE down the spur to the Derrybeg Stream B9940021250 (Point C) and then continue on up to the summit. However given the excellent conditions on theday I decided we should head E to cross the stream further down and then go up to the knobbly top of Keamnacally C0060020975 (Point D) a small hill not listed on MV's. Once there we dropped down S over a number of grass and rock shoulders until we found a rocky ledge with superb views down to and along Glenveigh with the Castle particularly prominent far below.. It was only the next day when walking out the lakeside track S of the Castle that I realised this small hill is the high rocky ridge with a small bump halfway along which is prominent as one looks along the Glen from the NE end of the lake. From Keamnacally we headed up the broad ridge NW and then down to a coll before climbing up a long but gentle boulder strewn slope to the cairned top of Saggartnadooish E Top. There is a splendid panorama extending from Muckish across Sheephaven Bay to Melmore Head and Inishowen, then around to the distant Sperrins and SE across the Glendowan Mountains to the Bluestacks. From Saggartnadooish E Top we headed NW down to a coll before climbing to the rocky top of Saggartnadooish. Judging by the fact that this is the first comment posted for Saggartnadooish E Top I suspect it is not a top that many will climb for its own sake. For those minded to so do it would be possible to make a direct trip up and down from an appropriate point on the R251 but be prepared for a very boggy start up from the road to the point where you have to cross through the Deer Fence. For details of my route from Saggartnadooish E Top back to the R251 see my comments for Saggartnadooish.
Point C: B99400 21250 Point D: C00600 20975
