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 1010th highest place in Ireland.

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/
