The townland of Brougher gets its name from the hill. The name meaning 'edge' or 'brink' may reflect the fact that Brougher Mountain stands on the border between Tyrone and Fermanagh.   Brougher Mountain is the 1004th highest summit in Ireland.

For top baggers only....especially lazy ones
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  2 Dec 2012
Brougher Mountain, decked as it is in assorted transmitting ironmongery, squats in a decidedly unaesthetic fashion on the Fermanagh-Tyrone border, the ease of its ascent being pretty much the only thing to recommend it.

The access road to the transmitters starts at (353540 A) and it should be possible to drive the majority of the way up it, but take note of the signs requesting a 5mph speed limit where it passes houses low down. At (352530 B) there is a gate that is generally shut (with a sign requesting that it remain so): opening the gate, driving through and closing it again seems possible, but if unsure it is easy to park up on a road that branches off to the left just short of the aforementioned gate. From here the road quickly passes some towers on the left, before climbing up to the main station. At an electric gate barring access to the main compound the pedestrian can choose to skirt the complex on the left (shorter, rougher) or right (longer, clearer). Either way, once around the far side the triangulation pillar is only a short distance further on. The view is of lowlands rather than highlands, and those lowlands are comparatively ordinary.

A hill for a cycle?
by three5four0  17 Aug 2010
Brougher Mountain is a hill that can be accessed via public transport, with the Omagh to Enniskillen Ulsterbus service passing through the village of Trillick, with links to Belfast, Londonderry and Dublin. Though this hill route is mostly on minor roads, these are quite and the more adventurous or those who own padded cycling shorts, may prefer to climb this hill by mountain bike.

In Trillick take the minor road at H33217 55928 C and follow it till a minor road junction at H35918 54394 D, turn right here and just under a km reach the access track at H35303 54023 E. Follow this up hill, past a farm house. Then through a gate, with a please keep closed sign, shortly after which you arrive at a large telecommunications building.

The summit lies a short distance away, the quickest way is to cross the fence, on your left and follow it through the heather to the Trig Point. Going this way, you pass directly in front of 2 large sat dishes, which point out across the hill. Anyone who has used a sat phone, will recall the golden rule about getting between your sat phone and its dish. It fries your brain! These dishes are probable safe, but why take the chance?, and make sure you mobile is off too.

Try this way instead, go to the right hand side of the buildings, where a wire fence joins the building fencing. The wire fence has two poles close together, one with string to the other, if you lift the loop of string up over the other fence pole, it falls back, giving you access to the ground round the buildings. Follow the edge of the buildings fence right round (which avoids the sat dishes this time), arriving at a bank with a fence. Cross this and walk the last few metres to the Trig Point and Summit of Brougher Mountain. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/935/comment/6028/

A hill of little merit for walkers
by Harry Goodman  30 Sep 2010
I climbed (!!) this hill on Sat 25 Sept 2010 by way of a short detour on my way to Enniskillen. Initially I took the B107 NW from Fivemiletown to Clabby and then a series of minor roads to a cross roads at H359544 F where I turned left onto the Rosnareen Rd. About 1km along access to Brougher Mt. was by way of another minor road on the left at H353540. Having confirmed from a local man that it was in order to do so I drove up as far as a gate across the road which was not locked but bore a sign "Keep closed at all times". I parked just inside the gate to ease my turning space. The walk from here, even by three5four0's longer route to the right around the edge of the communication station's perimeter fence, was only a short ramble of 1.3km up and down and easily done in 15 to 20 minutes.The views from the top H3493152793 G were pleasant but not spectacular. NE was Slieve Beagh with the distant Mournes just visable beyond while to the SW was Cuilcagh and the Leitrim hills. Frankly this is a hill of little merit for the hillwalker either as a challenge or for its aesthetic value. It should I would suggest only be sought out by someone completing the MV list of tops for the area and preferably, en route to or from other more interesting or challenging walks, in my case Tullybrack and Belmore Mt., both of which I climbed later the same day.
