Much climbed but little remembered, Skregmore is a victim of its location. One of the highest summits in Ireland but adjacent to still higher tops, impressively rocky but still far less dramatic than many nearby mountains, it sits on the north arm of the Coomloughra Horseshoe, and its ascent will invariably be made either in the course of this marvellous outing or during an ascent/descent of Beenkeragh alone.

Start from the new car park at (A (V771 871)) and walk up the Hydro Road to Lough Eighter, then take to the steep slopes of Cnoc Íochtair; a path can be found leading most of the way up this. Once over this lesser summit a straightforward climb over grass, rock and boulders leads to the rough summit. The Coomloughra Horseshoe route continues over the slightly higher twin top of Stumpa Barr na hAbhann on the way to Beenkeragh.

Skregmore is a very fine viewpoint, with the north face of Caher across the coum looking especially impressive.

From Stuaic Bharr na h-Abhann IB (V79631 85858) (see for previous stage of walk) you have a short but steep drop over very loose rocky ground to a saddle before ascending over similar ground to the summit of Skregmore. Perhaps, it was tiredness on my part but I found the ground to be particularly treacherous over this stage, almost turning my ankle on two or three occasions. Skregmore IC (V79211 86035) has, like most of the other summits in this are a small stone cairn marking its top. The views from here are akin to those from ‘Stuaic’. The weather had cleared considerably by this stage allowing for clearer views to the WNW across Loch Acoose and Carragh Lake and beyond as well as to the Brandon Group of mountains across the Bay.

Not the worst views of the Reeks !!
by David-Guenot 25 Jan 2016
Despite being overshadowed by its big sisters, Skregmore has some great views to offer. Thought I should share this pic I took in May 2015, as I was walking the Coomloughra Horseshoe anticlockwise, under absolutely perfect weather conditions. One can even see Mullaghanattin and Beann to the right of the picture. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/21/comment/18428/

When you get to the summit of Skegmore this , if you're lucky , is the view that greets you.
The summit is strewn with rocks typical of much of the Reeks and there is a fair climb up from Cnoc Iarthair to reach Skregmore.The photo shows the way on to Stumpa Barr na hAbhann, Beenakeragh, Carrantoohils Tooth and Carrauntoohil. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/21/comment/1815/

Skregmore is the first peak on the circuit of Coumloughra (assuming a clockwise direction). The picture shows the summit cairn looking back down west along the ridge. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/21/comment/508/

Struggling Against The Wind
by Aidy 27 Dec 2016
Second summit on a partially successful attempt at completing the Coomloughra Horseshoe. As on Cnoc Iochtair, the winds were fierce and I had to hunker down a few time during particularly bad gusts to avoid being blown off my feet. I didn't feel confident about finishing the horseshoe, but was taking every summit as a bonus. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/21/comment/18736/
