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 1110th highest place in Ireland.

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.
