Long route from the south.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  18 Jan 2019
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track for most of the journey, but the disadvantage of being a 12km return trip. Park at V984 848 A and follow the stoney track south for about 4km, which takes you just past the Devil's Punchbowl. Follow a curving route around the southern edge above the lough for about 1km to reach Mangerton summit. For there Dromderalough NE is just over 1km SW, descending to about 620 before the short climb to this not overly distinct top. The terrain on the final part of this trip is quite rough - peat hags, uneven ground, marshy in places. From car to summit took 2.5 hours.
