Circuit includes top.
by pplsgod 25 Feb 2022
Did Lugduff on Sunday 28th Feb 2010 as part of a circuit around Glendalough (see walks list "Glendalough - Camade - Lgh Firrib - Lugduff" for more info on route) Starting at the visitor centre head for the main road and turn left. Head for the junction of R757 and St Kevins Road, take St. Kevins Road also known as St. Kevins Way

After a short walk along St. Kevin Road (approx half a kilometre) there is a left turn into the
forestry. It is the first turn you will come across along this road. The route through the forest is a
well trodden track which zig zags before opening to a clearing onto the ridge of Camaderry

If you follow a bearing of 280 degrees you will come onto the South East summit of Camaderry at A (T089 974). The walk upto Camaderry summit at B (T082 981) from here is straightforward with a compass bearing of 319 degrees

From Camaderry summit take a bearing of 300 degrees which will bring you to Turlough Hill
Reservoir at C (T065 985). From here take a new bearing of 290 degrees towards Lough Firrib taking care to avoid steep ground on your right hand side. Lough Firrib is located at D (T049 987)

From Lough Firrib (to avoid losing too much ground) walk for approx 1km along a bearing of
200 degrees (should take max 20 minutes) and then turn to 140 degrees directly towards
Lugduff summit. Adjust your compass to 130 degrees which will bring you to Lugduff SE Top . Turn due East (80 degrees) and drop down to the Spink Walk track

You can follow the Spink track / boardwalk all the way back to the visitor centre or for a slight
variation turn into the forestry at E (T095 957) approx - on the track there is a signpost telling you exactly where to turn off the boardwalk) After a short decent you will pick up a track that runs parallel to the Spink trail by taking a left after coming out of the forestry. There are a
few different trails that lead back to the visitor centre.

On this day there was a lot of snow lingering around the summits which slowed our progress, the walk took 6 hrs 30 minutes but could probably be done in an hour less ing ood weather Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/190/comment/4459/

csd on Lugduff
by csd 4 Aug 2003
Middle: Lugduff ridge with Lugduff to the extreme right. Foreground: Fraughan Rock Glen. Background: Tonlagee and Camaderry. If you have six hours to spare, a pleasant circuit taking in Lugduff can be done. Start at the car park at Baravore and head up the forest track to Table Mountain. Lunch at Three Lakes can be followed by the short pull up to Conavalla. Then head SE along the ridge that divides Glendalo and Glenmalur, taking in Lugduff on the way. Divert south through the Cullentragh Park and aim to hit the forest at approx F (T077 935). Aim for the stream marked in the middle of the forested section and listen for the sound of falling water. There is a delightful waterfall secreted in the woods. Finish up by heading straight down to the road and turn right for the kilometre or so walk to the car park. Photo taken 04.08.2003.

View across Ridge
by darrenf 14 Jun 2010
This photo was taken en route to Lough Firrib. We started at the upper car park in Glendalough and ascended the steps taking you up to the spinc. From here its a straightward tramp across the boardwalk until you come to a junction. Going straight on (or keeping right) will take you to the bridge at the head of Glendalough Valley and bearing left at this point takes you up and over to the saddle between Mullacor and Lugduff SE Top. We took in SE Top before stopping for lunch on top of Lugduff. We continued on toward Lough Firrib.

The photo clearly shows the Lugduff ridge to the right of the photo, while the trail snaking down from the spinc is also clearly visible. The head of the Glendalough Valley is just peeking through also. Unfortunately the camera battery died just as we approached Lough Firrib. Typical. Be warned however that we discovered a number of ticks on our legs after spending some time in the peaceful surrounds of Lough Firrib. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/190/comment/5876/

Picture: Lugduff from Camenaologue SE Top
A high point on long ridge separating Glendalough from Glenmalure
by Bunsen7 23 Apr 2018
This picture is taken pretty much directly to the west of Lugduff across Glenmalure on an approach to Camenabologue SE Top.

Most people will probably take in Lugduff as part of a circuit of Glendalough, but possibly as an out and back spur in an otherwise circular route, because a complete circuit taking in Lugduff would normally make for a very long walk (e.g. coming from or en route to Conavalla.

Track 2496 showcases one of the more classic routes that includes Lugduff.

On a good day, you should be able to see Art's Lough from its summit when looking towards Clohernagh to the south-west - on a good day! Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/190/comment/19906/

Picture: poor visibility near lough firrib
Glendalough lough firrib circuit
by Ste 12 Apr 2013
Climed lugduff as part of a circuit starting from glendalough upper car park. Original planned route was glendalough - lough firrib - turlough hill reservoir - camaderry - glendalough (walk 8, "best Irish walks", joss lynam). Followed glenealo river to lough firrib. Visibility was very poor (see pic) but the river acted as a perfect line to follow, supplemented by map and compass. As I got to approx 550m snow appeared. When crossing the large snow areas I ended up going waste high on a few occasions. Visibility got so bad, and I was losing my nerve with the snow, so I decided that I would retreat as rain/sleet/hail was worsening as was the light and visibility. I headed back down the glenealo river route but as I got a few hundred metres down I suddenly decided that I had to bag a summit after coming this far. I got the map out and decided that I would head south up onto the ridge that links Conavalla to Lugduff. Got to G (T052 972) and set a bearing for Lugduff. I then realised I had made a big mistake. The weather deteriorated and visibility was only a few metres. My navigating skills were about to be tested to the full. Then came the peat hags! Oh how I hate peat hags. Snow sat in between the hags which made them almost impossible to cross. A straight line ahead was impossible. The 3km tramp to Lugduff ended up being 5km I reckon. As I reached the cairn of Lugduff, exhausted, I found cover.. Was gonna head for Mullacor but weather was just too bad so I dropped down to the Spink and back to the car. A planned 5 hr hike ended up 6.5 hrs and much harder than planned. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/190/comment/14970/
