Summary for Laghtshanaquilla North-East Top (Leacht Sheanchoille (mullach thoir thuaidh)): Broad rocky summit with vies to the south east.
Summary created by jackill 2023-03-10 12:18:25
Park at Scara S (R974 209) which is a forest entrance on the side of the main road between Cahir and Mitchelstown, room for 3 cars. Cross the barrier and follow the track through the forest going left then left again and across a sheep-wire fence out on to the open hillside. The track marked on the OS 1:50000 map has stone walls on both sides however it's after disappearing into the bog in many places and it is advisable to walk along the edge of it rather than on the track itself. This track leads all the way to the summit of Laghtshanaquilla, from there an easy crossing of bog on an intermittent track will get you to the summit of Laghtshanaquilla North-East Top.

Access via the forest entrance on left at A (R98914 28087) which although has a barrier is not locked according to locals this will allow you to drive up to the mast and just past it at B (R96909 27255) a track on the left will take you to the open mountains for a quick and easy bag.
