The three hollows in questions are probably the valleys of Derrymore, Derryquay and Curraheen, which cut into the sides of the mountain.   Baurtregaum is the highest mountain in the Slieve Mish area and the 18th highest in Ireland.

A walk among the clouds.
by TommyV  23 Mar 2019
I followed Scapania's directions to get started for the tough pull up to Gearhane. It was a lovely day out and the views on the climb up were spectacular but there was a cloud sitting on the highest parts of the mountains and the sun did not burn it off so I spent the most exciting part of the hike in a cold windy environment with poor enough visibility. However going from Gearane to Caherconree and then dropping from Caherconree to the spot height at 706, I could clearly see the steep cliffs on either side, at one stage there was possible only a metre wide section of the ridge with nothing but the vastness below. I would strongly advise caution up here and absolutely in no way attempt this if the weather is in any way bad, especially with wind. The climb up to Bautregaum is less spectacular than the summits that preceded it but it is still nice to reach the highest point on the hike. Instead of completing the horseshoe to Scragg, a great way to finish this hike, especially in low cloud, is to drop down to Derrymore Lough and follow the Derrymore river out of the valley until you reach the Dingle way again. Truely a fine walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/17/comment/20470/
