Picture: Stoney Top, centre, is overshadowed by Tonelagee to the left.
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 GlMacnas (O11357 03030) (Note the notorious hazard here of the Glenmacnass River which can rise and become impassable quickly following rain.)

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: mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/428/

Picture: We are not alone...
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!! Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/6732/

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: mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/376/

philb on Stoney Top

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: mountainviews.ie/summit/100/comment/1020/
