Picture: Stoney Top, centre, is overshadowed by Tonelagee to the left.
High bump on ridge, useful in routes.
Short Summary created by simon3  31 Mar 2015
Stoney Top is the name given to a bump on the ridge leading north from Tonelagee. It will usually be included in longer walks, not normally being a target in itself.
If you did want to get to it specifically you could start from the Glenmacnass car park at around O11357 03030 A (Note the notorious hazard here of the Glenmacnass River which can rise and become impassable quickly following rain.)

I crossed from Mullaghcliabhan to Stony top across the Barnacullen bog. This was definitely one of the more scary treks I've made. I frequently sank into the peat up to knee level (not the worst thing that could happen but I didn't hang about to find out how far down I could go). The landscape is indeed amazing as the top comment suggests but it's a potentially very dangerous route. Linkback:

Mullaghcleevaun to Tonlagee via Stony Top takes you across a lunar landscape of peat hags and bogs. Allow more time for the traverse than a cursory glance at the map would suggest!

A word of caution: water levels in the Glenmacnass river can rise quickly and it can quickly become difficult to cross. This may add an unanticipated long walk to a safe crossing at the end of your hike. Linkback:

An interesting route starts in Glenmacnass car park and follows the river upstream, up a steep slope to the right of a waterfall. Mullaghcleevaun is a short distance to the north. Head SSE along the ridge to Stony Top (best in dry weather - can be very boggy underfoot) and continue on up Tonelagee and descend to car park. Time about 6 hours (7 to include Mullaghcleevaun) Linkback:

Climbed Stoney Top yesterday as part of a hill trio - Carrignagunneen, Stoney and Tonelagee. Ascended Carrignagunneen from forest track at O04860 03360 B, a quick bash through the trees (note that Map56 incorrectly shows clear mountainside on the right of this track, there is quite a forested area here, see the more factual Harvey map) and up through the heather to the featureless, unmarked 561m summit.
From there, I dropped east to the forest edge at O06000 03170 C and followed the perimeter before entering the forest by means of a firebreak at O07160 03620 D. Continue for 300m and you will meet forest track, this is not shown on the OS map, but is accurate on the Harvey. Headed directly SE to Stoney Top from here through a felled area of forest (not shown as cleared on either map being relatively recent Coillte work, probably).

As this was already quite a windy day to begin with, it was gale force at the summit and further on at the cross-inscribed stone overlooking Lough Ouler, it was exceptionally reminded me of the times many years ago as a kid when you would stick your head out the window of a moving car and try to breathe while the wind rushed headlong into your open mouth...!
