All is changed, changed utterly, a terrible beauty is born!
by Trailtrekker  19 Feb 2013
Well not quite and I'm sure that Yeats himself would think that quote itself is a bit misplaced. However, there has been one very significant change to this area since all previous comments and it does have a significant affect on the view, access and the summit! The forest to the south and south west of the summit area has been harvested. A number of the trees that have not been cleared lie across the fence protruding into field and making a dance along the summit ridge as Dessie has done, a lot more cumbersome! The harvesting has also meant that the approach to the summit through the forestry is now clear, with no obstructions along the route. Finally, you now have 360 degree views from summit, looking over the battered remains of the forestry you can see the beautiful views to the south. (OK, maybe there is one tenuous parallel between this hill and Easter 1916).

I did Lugnagun very recently as part of a circuit that included Sorrell and the god forsaken Carrigleitrim. This meant that I was approaching Lugnagun from the forestry on the north east of Sorrell and heading for the 427M spot height in between the two summits. From here, as already mentioned, there is a clear and boggy track to Lugnagun. I did jump along the different humps of ground on the summit to make pretty sure that I had indeed stood on the highest point. From here I decided to follow the track on to the edge of the forest where I saw there was a cairn marked on the osi map. The cairn is the type that I have commonly found in this area, overgrown and unworthy of examination in it's own right, I could however see why it was located in this area, as it does provide probably the best view of any spot on this hill.

From here I retraced my steps to the stile near the summit and headed into the deforested area, as already mentioned by darrenf you will soon pick up a forest track at O 01123 12327, turn left and follow it to a gate on the edge of the forestry at O 02472 11578 F, from here it is straightforward farmers tracks down through the field to join the road at O 03012 11152 G. For me it was just under 2km on this quiet road back to the car to complete my 14k walk for the day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/633/comment/14928/
