Summit situated in the townland of Cross. Had an army base on the summit, dismantled around 2001. The second element of Slieve Girkin is suggestive of cuircín, 'crest' or 'comb', which would fit well with the crinkly appearance of the summit when seen from Camlough, but no Irish forms have been found to confirm this.   Camlough Mountain is the 767th highest place in Ireland. Camlough Mountain is the second highest point in county Armagh.

Whilst being an enjoyable viewpoint on its own, Camlough can be combined with Slieve Gullion to make a very enjoyable days walk. Start at the Three Steps pub in Dromintee and take the road opposite for the Slieve Gullion Drive. Follow the drive against the flow of traffic and head for the top car park. From here you take the standard route up to the summit of Slieve Gullion as described on it's pages. Follow the ridge to Calliagh Beara's lough and the North Cairn before descending south easterly. The descent takes you down to St Monina's Well and down the track to Killeavey Old Church. From the church follow the road downhill for a bit and turn left at the crossroads. Along the Keggal road you get to take in the view along Camlough Lake. At the picnic site head right onto the steep slope of Camlough Mountain and simply head upwards. The first summit is Keggal Mountain and the summit of Camlough is straight ahead. The sunnit area is surrounded by a shallow gully (again showing why the army were so comfortable here).There are generally no access difficulties on the upper side of the mountain road so your descent should take you either side of the summit into the gully and around to face over Camlough village. Descend straight down keeping to the right of the obvious maintained land and onto the mountain road. take Gordon's Lane down the remainder into Camlough and call into Emmet Quinns for a well deserved drink. Not a walk which will appeal to the purists on this site due to some country road walking, but nonetheless an excellent and rewarding exploration of South Armagh with some stunning views.
