Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  22 Aug 2013
Leave the R253 at G968963 A and follow a minor road S and then SW for 5 km to off road parking at G9372493563 B. Walk west along the road for 1.2km to G9262693317 C where a gate crosses it. Go through, leave the road and turn right (NW) uphill along a fence line on the right. Follow up to a noticeable rocky knoll at G9197793632 D. This gives access to the long and broad summit ridge with the high point G9168883565 E, still some 300 metres further along and passing a small lough on the way.. The ground is a mix of grass covered peat and some rocks. There are close up views S across the Reelan Valley to Silver Hill and Lavagh More and further along the Bluestacks ridge E to the triangular profile of Gaugin Mt. A walk out and back of 5km. Most likely however to be climbed as part of a longer circuit covering a number of tops. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/754/comment/5513/

Climbed this stack of the well as part of a circuit from G937935 F that took in Silver Hill, Croaghubbrid, Croaghugagh, Lacroagh and Crooveenananta. The approach to Silver Hill was generally SW over pt 567m. The low point of the walk E of Croaghubbrid Lough at G913929 G is an immensely peaceful iddylic location. It has that remote feel to it, surrounded by the Bluestack hills and the Binnacally cliffs and Gaugin mountain in the distance - a good camping spot. Croaghubbrid gives good views of the Blue Stack range to the S/SE/E. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/754/comment/4083/

Brilliant In A Circuit Of Nearby Tops
by Aidy  20 May 2016
The fourth and final peak in a walk that had taken in Croveenananta, Lacroagh and Croaghugagh. From Croaghugagh it was a steep drop down to the valley, east of Loch an Aillt, and then a short walk up to the long summit area of Croaghubbrid. I had to wander round several likely looking spots to be sure I had stood on the summit. Like the other summits on the walk, there were brilliant views around the rest of the Bluestacks from this remote top, although the good weather finally deserted me here and the rain started. A brilliant walk if the other summits mentioned are included. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/754/comment/18540/
