In my opinion the best route for doing this ridge is to park in a layby beside Crummie's Bay (C294392 A). It is situated just a few yards after the turn off for Dunree Fort. Then follow the road on round which runs parallel to the ridge itself via Milltown, Cartha and Hill Side. When you come to the end of this road simply turn left and walk steeply up to Mamore Gap and onto the small track on the left hand side, just past the small car park. This takes you to the top of the ridge. The first top is this one, Croaghcarragh. The photo shows Croaghcarragh from the Urris Hills. I think the group on top were from Magee Hillwalking Club.

Seems Grander Than It Is

Climbed on the way to the Urris HIlls from Mamore Gap, and like all the hills on both sides of the gap, I was captivated by the rugged terrain and the amazing views. All these hills have the feel of much bigger mountains than they actually are and the day I spent there must be among the most enjoyable walks I've had.
