Fine walk from the townland of Croleck ; following stream for a while then ascend Glascairn Hill and on to Ardnageer.Follow ridge to Cruachgorm ,down & up to Lavaghmore. Descend to young forest & make your way punishingly around or through it to Croleck. Strenuous,wet at beginning & end but eminently enjoyable.
