The Aghla's are members of the Seven Sisters (Muckish, Crocknalaragagh, Aghla Beg, Ardloughnabrackbaddy, Aghla More, Mackoght and Errigal) and whilst not as well known as Errigal (their big sister) are, because of their remoteness, perhaps more challenging. We parked just north Muckish Gap at Altderry bridge and then walked northwards along the road to take the track on the left along the west bank of the river. After about 2km the track crosses a rough bridge and ends. We turned right (west) and headed towards Lough Moilt and the NW ridge of Aghla Beg which gave a steep ascent to the summit of Aghla Beg. A short descent and traverse across a plateau lead to the gentle ascent to Aghla Beg South which at 603m is the highest of the three Aghlas. From here we descended a gentle slope westwards towards Lough Feeane before ascending Aghla More. Retracing our steps on the descent of Aghla More we contoured around the north end of Lough Feeane and then ascended to the small summit of Ardloughnabrackbaddy before contouring around the slippery tussocks of the western slopes of Aghla. We eventually reached a ridge on the western side of Lough Moilt which we followed before descending steeply to the lough and picking up a track which lead us back to our car.

Our route took a bit longer than expected as Kernowclimber forgot to put in her orthopaedic insoles into her new boots and had to hobble most of the way.
