Summary for Tonelagee E Top (Tóin le Gaoith (mullach thuaidh)): Sitting above Lough Ouler

Picture: Tonelagee NE Top
One approach is from near the Glenmacnass Waterfall on the military road (R115). There is a car parking area at GlMacnas (O11400 03000) with room for several cars, but be warned that car break-ins are becoming increasingly common in the parking areas of the Dublin /Wicklow mountains.

Cross the river and head SW up the spur leading to Tonelagee NE Top. This is a relatively gentle 2.3km slope to the summit. The top is a large flat area with no clearly defined summit and a number of large peat hags.

Another approach is from the Wicklow Gap TurL Hl (O0752 0017) from which it is a simple though stern climb first to Tonelagee before making your way to the NE Top.

Tonelagee NE Top sits above Lough Ouler, a nice heart shaped lake. Other views include the main Tonelagee summit, together with the flat profile of the reservoir on Turlough Hill and the long line of the Camaderry ridge leading down to Glendalough.

Picture: Looking S to the Brockaghs from Tonelagee NE Top
A long but gentle climb.
by Harry Goodman 14 May 2010
As I had an opportunity on Mon 10 May 2010 to do some hill walking I decided to climb Tonelagee NE Top as it was the nearest, to Dublin, of four 600m tops in Dublin/Wicklow that I had not, as yet, climbed. I started from the parking area GlMacnas (O11400 03000) off the R115 just N of the Glenmacnass Waterfall by crossing the river and heading SW up the spur leading to Tonelagee NE Top. Although a track is marked on the Harvery's Wicklow Map, and I was able to pick it out from time to time, in the end I more or less made my way directly to the top up a fairly gentle slope of heather and grass for some 2.3km. The top is a large flat area with no clearly defined summit and a number of large peat hags. The sharp face of Tonelagee dominates the skyline directly to the SW, together with the flat profile of the reservoir on Turlough Hill and the long line of the Camaderry ridge leading down to Glendalough. As I did not want to simply descend by the same route I decided instead to make for Brockagh Mountain and Brockagh Mountain SE Top before looping back down to the R115 and walking up the road past the Glenmacknass Waterfall to my start point , a total round of some 12.5km. For further information on my extended route see my comments on Brockagh Mountain. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/159/comment/4732/

simon3 on Tonelagee E Top
by simon3 5 Feb 2007
Lough Ouler, heart shaped lake in the centre of Wicklow rests at the foot of Tonelagee and is cradled by the boggy ridge that Tonelagee NE Top on one side and to the north a smaller, unnamed ridge. As mneary34 says, it is more likely to be visited en route to somewhere else than for any other reason.

Our photo shows it one cold, bright February day. On the skyline to the left is Scarr. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/159/comment/2603/

Picture: The 'pinnacle' of Tonelagee NE top
Barely recognisable as a separate top
by Colin Murphy 27 Mar 2017
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no marking and its prominence is barely distinguishable from the surrounding landscape. I did it as the first stop in a loop also taking in Tonelagee and Stoney Top Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/159/comment/18863/

A good handy walk if you live near Dublin or Wicklow. Some times you can hear strange sounds from the lake. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/159/comment/351/
