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.

Short Summary created by markmjcampion, scapania  16 Aug 2023
Baurtregaum is the high pt of the Slieve Mish and lies SE of the village of Camp. It's often climbed along with Caherconree.
It's got a flattish top with some small stone shelters but has some fine spurs and valleys to the N and is close to the spectacular Derrymore Glen.

N. From the N start at Q74255 10717 starA a little W of Derrymore Bridge. Follow a track S and turn E when you join the Dingle Way. If going via Derrymore Glen take a right when you meet the Derrymore river and follow the feint trail on the W side of the river. At the 2nd lake head right to a flattish area called Fionn MacCool's Table; here head left up through bands of rock to reach the col with Caherconree. Then go left up broad, rocky slopes, summiting after 2 to 2.5 hrs. Descend the same way or via the NW or NE spur.

Alternatively, climb Gearhane via its NNE ridge and visit Caherconree before heading on to Baurtregaum - descend via the aforementioned glen. This beautiful circuit takes 4.5 to 5 hrs.

A more direct route would be to cross the Derymore river after about 2k and head up the steep slopes of Baurtregaum NW top and from there the main summit is only about 1 km away.

S. From the south park discreetly at Q76138 03900 starB and follow the southern spur of Castle Hill, then head N to the Slieve Mish ridge before swinging W to the summit. Allow 2.5 hrs for this 840m ascent.

W. For a longer walk, ascend from Q71548 05353 starC.
