hidden among higher summits

It is very rare these days to come across a summit on MV that has no comments, particularly in such an accessible area as the Sperrins. However such is the case with Craigagh Hill. The hill is somewhat hidden from view as it is surrounded by higher mountains on three sides. Indeed one could almost argue that Craigagh Hill is merely a subsidiary top of Oughtmore with only a shallow col separating the two. I parked off-road at the entrance to a stony track which leads up the hillside (718997). The track forks almost immediately and you should take the right branch which leads directly to the summit. Someone has been busy cutting turf sods and much of the hillside was festooned with little piles of them. I don't think I've ever seen so much turf in one place before - unfortunately they weren't drying well due to the wet summer we've had.

The track reaches up towards the 460m summit which is covered in large peat hags, many of which have been cut. It was just a case of finding the highest peat hag and standing on it. Excellent views to Mullaghmore, Crockalougha, Benbradagh and to Slieve Gallion. There was some mist in the air which blocked longer views across Lough Neagh. The hill drops steeply on its eastern side and this is probably the reason why it is popular with local hang-gliders. Soon enough I headed back to the car by the same route - a very easy 30 minutes up and down if you want to tick it off, although I would advise visiting on a better day. Climb it before the turf-cutters reduce its height any further. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/586/comment/14772/
