This is a lower top just 600m W of Croaghaun itself. A little caution is required on the summit in poor visibility due to the precipice to the N. Offshore winds, which can blow walks towards or even over the cliffs, are not unknown here.
Croaghaun SW Top is the third highest mountain in the Achill/Corraun area and the 171st highest in Ireland. Croaghaun SW Top is the second most westerly summit in the Achill/Corraun area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/166/
