Fine mountain with small lough almost on the summit.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  4 Dec 2013
This approach is from SW and forms part of a looped walk including Binnasruel, Lavagh More, Lavagh Beg and Silver Hill. Park at G 896 885 A , beside and abandoned cottage, where there is room for a couple of cars. Climb over fence and proceed north up a gently rising slope turning NE at point G898 890 B after a few hundred metres where the slope become increasingly steeper. Continue in this direction for approx 2 km to reach Binnasruel, then continue NE for another 2km, passing between a number of small loughs in the col around point G 924 903 C. The climb to Lavagh More is reasonably easy and the summit is is a broad rocky/grassy area, marked by a cairn. From here it is a relatively short hop to Lavagh Beg. Turn NW for 1km dropping down to just 540m altitude before a relatively easy climb to the summit, which features a couple of potential high-point candidates, but the highest point is marked by a pile of rocks, and overlooks a tiny lough. It took approximately 3.5 hours to reach this point, including a break for food. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/4956/
