I'm surprised this fine little top hasn't been scaled before. There are a series of bog roads which take you to within 15 minutes of the top (in an ordinary car, off-roaders have left their muddy ruts near the top) after following a minor road out of Mountshannon as far as you are happy to travel! I stopped a couple out walking who said it is possible to drive over the pass following the East Clare Way but I declined this advice. Anyway it is a simple walk up the bog roads where turf is still cut until you can view the small cairn off to the NW. Cutting across the open and desolate bog makes you feel as if you are in wild country and fine views over Lough Derg soon open up. On gaining the cairn the trig is nearby and there are panoramic views all round including the other 2 Slieve Aughtys I also bagged earlier in the day as well as other tops yet to be climbed. You can hang around here hill spotting all day but I took some photos and descended as clouds were forming and it was getting late. A lovely little hill with a big view and wild terrain.
