Short Summary created by wicklore,  19 Aug 2013
Cùlòg can be accessed from L87901 55560 A. The starting point is in the Glenlosh Valley, which is privately owned. It is advised to seek permission from the landowners who live in the last house at the end of the valley.

Starting at one of the valleys holiday cottages, it's a pleasant walk along a good (but wet) track initially, then following the banks of a rushing mountain stream. A steep uphill pull then brings you across an unspoilt heathery plateau to the high point. There are great views over to the nearby main Maamturks. The unspoilt nature of this summit means there are no tracks through the heather on the last several hundred metres of the walk across the top.

For those already up on the main Maamturks ridge, an approach can be made from Loch Mhám Ochoige. From the lake descend north-eastward to the col between Loch Mhám Ochoige and Cúlóg, and head up to Cùlòg from there.

Here is a link to a gps track for a 7km return walk from the Glenlosh Valley to Cùlòg that avoids very steep ground to the west and north: http://mountainviews.ie/track/1331/ Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/675/comment/5434/

New Comment: Nice views of main Maamturks
by markwallace  22 Sep 2015
Arrived at Culog after a tricky descent from Binn Idir an Da Log, a little too steep to be comfortable walking, but doable. I assumed Culog would be little frequented, but there are traces of a path along the long summit area, so maybe not. Great views to the main Maamturks from this minor summit, also down into Glenglosh, Maam Valley, and so on. Photo shows Binn Idir an Da Log SE top (centre) and Binn Idir an Da Log (right) from Culog. Viewed from around Culog, it seems the name Binn Idir etc. must surely refer to the SE top, which is genuinely "between two hollows", unlike its parent peak.
From Culog the horseshoe walk continues onto Knocknagur, and then steeply down through many crags and crossing a fence onto the very, very quiet road. Despite the modest heights of these hills, this return leg of the Gleann Fada (aka Failmore) horseshoe is pretty hard walking. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/675/comment/18324/

(continuation from Binn idir an dá Log). Next destination to reach was Loch Mhám Ochoige. Going north-westward i could see the lake soon. It´s a little bit difficult to find the descend to the lake because there are some steep crags on the way. By the lake i turned north-eastward descendig to the col between Loch Mhám Ochoige and Cúlóg. A last climb on a grassy hillside brought me to the top of Cúlóg. From the top it is an easy walk on the ridge eastward. The last part of my way i followed the Failmore river to the little road where my car was parked. The time i took for the Failmore horseshoe was around 6,5 hrs Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/675/comment/3917/
