Picture: Topping out on Cotracloghy.
Park off road beside a forest entrance at CrkBroad (J04327 15353) adjacent to an Engineering Workshop. Take the track going SW straight ahead. Where it turns sharply to the left, either leave it and continue up the fence line over rough open ground to meet it again at A (J04074 14977) or follow it up and around to the same point. Continue up along the track to where three large boulders have been placed across it. Just beyond this point note a narrow boggy path going off to the left towards but not into the trees. Follow it B (J03972 14920) before leaving the open ground and going SW into the trees. Although passage through the trees is over rough ground a prominent high embankment soon appears ahead. On reacking it, if the face above is sheer,rocky and uninviting, go right around its edge to soon meet a grassy but equally steep bank that leads up to the top. Although out in open grass and heather covered ground the top is surrounded by trees and lies on a low, level but prominent rocky outcrop which is moss covered and very slippery in wet conditions. Any views to be had are on the open ground on the way up or down with Slieve Gullion particularly prominent. A climb of this hill can easily be included with climbs of other stand alone tops in the area on the same day. These include Mullaghabane Mtn., Faughill, Feede Mtn. and Slievenaglough .

Picture: Top of Hill laid bare
Views restored, at a price!
by eamonoc 12 Dec 2014
Climbed Gortracloghy 11/12/2014, Views from top now restored due to a large ongoing tree felling operation. Was able to follow forest track to its high point and easily attained top via log track laid for forestry machinery through clear felled area close to top.
