Striking, distinctive summit
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill, Colin Murphy,  20 Nov 2015
This high point of the Mullaghanattin Horseshoe. One approach is to park by the road at at Tooreennahone V747746 A, where the road forks. 100m before this point is a farm, where you should ask permission, but the farmer has previously been happy to grant this. Walk 100m along the track to the right before heading up the hillside to the east, which is steep in parts. If you want to do the summit in isolation, veer to the NE as you ascend to emerge somewhere on the long ridge of ups and downs that lead from the north of An Cnoc Riabach, around point V755 767 B. Turn NW for 1km. The terrain is grassy but firm, and a reasonably gentle slope until your turn west at V746 775 C, where it becomes very steep for most of the remaining 1km. The summit is on a small grassy area marked by a trig pillar.
Time to do a complete circuit including Beann and An Cnoc Riabhach 6 to 7 hours for reasonably experienced walkers.

Another, shorter route is from a point on the Ballaghbeama Gap road at point V757 780 D. Thge initial ascent is very steep. Ascend to the SW to point V755 767 B and continue as above.

It is also possible to reach Mullaghanattin from the vicinity of Cloon Lake. Be aware of the following:
Maurice Breen, who farms at the northern end of Cloon Lake in Co. Kerry has asked if walkers planning to ascend Mullaghanattin from that point could so by following the stream at V708783 E up the hill. Please do not ascend from the northern end of the lake (V709788 F), or the farm track at (V708785 G), as both these routes involve a number of fence crossings. Maurice has had problems in the past with damage to his fences, he is happy to have walkers on his land, as long as people act responsibly. Info via Mountaineering Ireland Nov 2015.
