Close encounters of the hillwalking kind...
by kernowclimber  25 Mar 2012
Arriving on Stoney Top from Tonelagge last weekend and looking across towards Table Mountain, we were suddenly sure we were 'not alone'. The sun breaking through the clouds like something from Speilburg's Close Encounters left us pretty spellbound!! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/6732/

I agree entirely with the comments made by other contributors in relation to ground conditions heading for Stoney Top from Barnacullian and also in relation to crossing the Glenmacnass River. Generally the ground on the east side of the approach from Barnacullian is better. This walk is best done in frosty conditions as I experienced today 26th November 2005 as the ground is less boggy. Stoney Top in the photo is left of centre with Tonelagee on the extreme left. The photo was taken from near the summit of Mullaghcleevaun East Top.

On the face of it, an unspectacular rounded hill, dwarfed by Tonlegee to the south and Mullaghcleevaun to the north. I climbed it Saturday 28th Feb 09 after following the Brockagh ridge from Laragh Church, then up Tonlegee where a turn right and north brought us down across a mucky bit before Stoney Top. Then back to the bog and east down to Lough Ouler and over the ridge to the forest and south along tracks to return to the car eventually. A long but straightforward ramble.

A haven of peace away from the multitudes!
by Colin Murphy  27 Mar 2017
The final top on a pleasant 3-summit loop, taking in Tonelagee NE, Tonelagee and this, and then descending around the pretty Lough Ouler back to Glenmacnass carpark. The summit is a rounded bump in the landscape and is unremarkable, although it is usually not visited by the Dublin Sunday walking horde, who were in such vast numbers on the summit of Tonelagee, there was almost no room left! Stoney Top was a haven of tranquility by comparison. It is marked by a small cairn of sorts. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/18864/

On the 7th of June after my descent from Kanturk Mountain, I walked 1km up North on the Military Road to cross the Glenmacnass RIver at O 104 036 A and took this picture. On the right is Stoney Top and on the left, Tonelagee Mountain.

It was a really sunny day, almost no wind and the river could be crossed without a problem. After this crossing, a boggy ascent of 500m awaited me. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/3172/
