Uninspiring remote top
by eoindunlea  20 Nov 2015
Unlikely to be climbed separately. Can be traversed on a circuit via Tonelagee or next top after Brockagh mountain. Summit marked by a lonely feeble attempt at cairn on a boulder. Track from Brockagh very uneven and waterlogged on 18 November 2015 coupled with gale force winds making progress slow. I decided to head to it solely because from memory of MV it is considered a separate top. Average views not worth the detour, and nothing compared to the stunning panorama from Brockagh East. On 18/11/15 view from Brockagh E was breathtaking with summit of Lug clearly visible and unshrouded, and Gleanmacnass waterfall in full flow after very heavy rainfall overnight. Brockagh NW Top however, I daresay, is for completists only. That said, nobody appeared to be about yesterday and one certainly felt a degree of remoteness on this apparently less visited place.
