It is not certain whether Bolaght represents Both Leachta, 'hut of the monument' [TNCT] or Buaileacht, 'herd of cows, dairying place' [JOD]. In the absence of any archaeological evidence, the latter seems more likely.   Bolaght Mountain is the 1056th highest summit in Ireland.

Return to childhood
by Aidy  8 Oct 2013
I didn't log this hill as climbed until Sunday when I made certain of standing on the summit, but I crossed over Bolaght many times as I child. My best friend and I would cycle up here to Point A and walk in to Lough Lee to do some...ahem..."fishing" with a device called an otter. Parked at the same point on Sunday and walked slightly South of due East to reach the summit. Great views North and West over Tyrone and Donegal, and immediately South over Lough Lee. Seemingly randomly scattered wind turbines often blight a landscape for me, but here, the more regimented layout seems to compliment the wild lough.

Despite the short distance the going was tough enough for a beginner like me, with deep heather and uneven ground and boggy holes. Not having invested in much gear yet, and not being sure how good waterproof boots really are, I was glad of the wellies. Access roads for the windfarm were visible on the South side of Lough Lee and could provide an easier approach on foot if desired. Saw a red grouse on the way back. Don't know who was more startled, him or me.

I couldn't better dr banuska's photo of Lough Lee, so included a shot looking West over Bin Mountain (not an MV peak) and Aghyarn in West Tyrone, to the cloud-capped Bluestacks in Donegal. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/904/comment/15220/
