Short detour from Western Way/on way to Nephin Beg
by markwallace  3 Jan 2019
Aroher Hill (called Correen More on EastWest Wild Nephin map) is just off the Western Way at Letterkeen, and can also be quite conveniently included in an ascent of Nephin Beg from the RL Prager Centre (formerly the Brogan Carroll Bothy).

If taking the Western Way northwards from the car park at the Centre, after just under 2 kilometres, shortly after passing a barrier, take the first available break in the trees (around F964 073 starA) and start climbing the steepish, boggy hillside. There are crags off to the left, but there’s no need to go near them. An ascent of 180 metres takes you to the top of the hill, which has neither cairn nor other marking. Then the kilometre-long ridge heading northwest can be followed towards Nephin Beg. Initially, it’s a pleasant ridge walk with expansive views to each side, as well as a good view of the route forward to Nephin Beg. Then there are a series of short drops, each over exposed rock which has to be gone round or scrambled down, and is quite slow going. Finally, at the col with Correen Beg (according to EW. Not an MV-listed summit, but a useful point of reference for climbing Nephin Beg), you pick up the Letterkeen loop track, albeit doing it in reverse. The track leads straight up to Correen Beg through a break in the forest (this break is clearly visible ahead as you descend from Aroher Hill). The photo shows Aroher Hill from Correenbeg. Note the steep ground and exposed rock on the descent.

The going is easier over Correen Beg and Nephin Beg South Top (Cruckgarru on EW map), and over Nephin Beg itself. In fact, the ground around Aroher Hill was the roughest I met with on the entire 18.4km circuit which descended from Nephin Beg to the Bangor Trail and back to the RL Praeger Centre. Taking in Aroher Hill adds about 25 minutes to the route, compared to following the Western Way for another 1km and ascending Correen Beg from there. Linkback:

Coreen More
by bogllama2210  26 Jul 2023
I decided to investigate this hill as I thought it might be a good one to bring family and inexperienced hikers up given it's small size and easy access, and also to look at perhaps the best reason to come, the Coreen Caves. The caves are quite deep and Irish soldiers used them to successfully evade a much larger British force combing the Nephin Begs during the War of Independence.

The climb was a lot tougher than I expected and while short, uneven terrain hidden by thick vegetation combined with a very steep slope made it quite difficult, too much so for beginner climbers. I also couldn't find the cave entrance among the crags, you'd probably need a local to come with you if you want to explore the caves as there are no images or maps of how to locate them online. The view from the summit is good enough but there is better to be found in the other nearby Nephin Begs.

Overall, the climb isn't really worthwhile unless you bring someone who can bring you to the cave entrance. If you do climb it be sure to take measures to protect from ticks as you'll get bitten easily climbing through the long grass. Linkback:

From Car to Summit.
by sandman  28 Jul 2023
Following the sign for Letterkeen car park in the Wild Nephin Wilderness Area and as you reach same follow the forest road to the right sign posted Western Way. Continue on this gravel road keeping left at Coillte entrance to F9562106545 starB where there is ample parking thus allowing you direct easy and quick access to the summit. Do not worry no gates or barriers exist to impede your entry or exit as this route is a right of way and can easily be driven by basically any motor vehicle. Linkback:

Lough Avoher
by Barry  26 Jan 2015
Whatever about any local name for this hill, I'm fairly certain that it's Lough Avoher or Loch a' Bhothár - the lough of the road (Bangor Trail road). Check the OS Six inch for spelling. Linkback:
