I parked at J19367 26078 A on the Yellow Road, south of Hilltown, and took the track south towards the general area of Gruggandoo's summit. There may also be approaches from the east, but there was some sort of shoot on so I decided to approach from safer ground in case either I or the dog were mistaken for a pheasant. Gruggandoo's upper reaches are criss-crossed by fences and surrounded by bog. Other than that, it's unremarkeable, but pleasant views of the western Mournes are to be had. Up-and-down is about 2km from the Yellow Road, so won't be too taxing. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/863/comment/4268/
