Some confusion going on here?
by IainT  6 Feb 2019
I have a sneaking suspicion that there's a bit of confusion going on around these rocky wee bumps west of Sugarloaf. This one (West Top) gets a 100% rating, despite being an amorphous lump (admittedly one in a great area with a good view), while its higher neighbour a few hundred metres away (Far West Top) gets rather less, despite having an impressively jagged summit and overlooking this one (and obviously is in the same area with a very similar view). If you were just looking at the Arderins list you might assume that the higher one was the West Top and rate it accordingly? To confuse matters further, the top east of this one, at V865528 B, has a fairly substantial drop too, maybe as much as 20m, a candidate for Arderin Beg status? All three tops are pretty separate from Sugarloaf (about 70m reascent to the first and lowest, which has a 530m contour despite the 520m spot height, so nearly 15% of the total height of the hill) so maybe a solution would be to give them their own name? The DoBIH gives Toberavanaha as an alternative, presumably from the lough, so how about calling them Toberavanaha, Toberavanaha SE Top and (if it qualifies) Toberavanaha Far SE Top. They are a cracking bunch of hills that feel separate and deserve their own identity, plus it seems less confusing (and the lough is a lot closer than Sugarloaf is).
