Small hill, big, big view !
by Harry Goodman  3 Nov 2011
I climbed this small hill on Sat. 29 Oct 2011. At B740 080 A where a farm lane goes off SW from the minor road I had stopped my car to consider my options when a Garda car passed. The officer in it assured me that there would be no problem driving up the lane to a small cream coloured bungalow and asking permission to climb the hill from there. At the house the owner readily gave me permission to park and assured me there was no problem with access. She also invited my wife in for a chat and a cup of tea while I was on the hill. I parked at B73979 07715 B (start) and walked around the left side of the bungalow before climbing directly SW, steeply uphill, keeping a fence line on my left. Where the fence ended I continued up in the same direction winding around some small rocky out crops and up to the top B73652 07293 C which is marked by a trig pillar. For such a lowly top views are extensive in a 365 degree panorama. To the NW was Arranmore while to the south I could see the long ridge of Slievetooey and east of it the Bluestacks. To the NE was Grogan More and Crocknafarragh. My walk up and down was easily done in 40 minutes even allowing for some time to take in the views when I was at the top. Given that this hill is somewhat out of the way and a short walk, I would suggest that it is combined with a walk to Crovehy to the east of Dunglow on the same day. As Croaghegly is part of a ridge, once on top, it would also offer opportunity for extending the walk to either the N or S. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1005/comment/6609/
