An unremarkable Top.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  23 Aug 2013
Leave the R253at G968963 A and follow a narrow minor road S the SW for 5km to park at G9372493563 B. Cross the road and take a track going N . This forms part of the Sli na Finne waymarked way. Although signed, this track at times is quite indistinct. However make for the obvious col between Lacroagh and Croveenananta and at G9358894677 C leave the track and go up left (SW) to the high point of Lacroagh which sits, unmarked, at the E end of the flat broad grass and peat hag covered summit area. It is most likely to be climbed in a round of a number of nearby tops on the same day. It is an unremarkable top and would hardly justify an outing where it is the sole objective of the walk.
