Although this peak is higher than either of its neighbours, Aghla More or Aghla Beg, it has always remained unnamed on Ordnance Survey maps. As it has never even been marked with a spot height on the 6 inch map, it seems likely that it was omitted because of a failure to realise that it was the highest peak in the group.   An Eachla Bheag (mullach theas) is the 279th highest place in Ireland.

Some Of The Best Views In Donegal
by Aidy  1 Mar 2016
The third summit on a walk which had started with Aghla More, and taken in Ardloughnabrackbaddy on the way. This is a magnificent part of the country for views, and on reaching the top, I was blown away again by new views down the steep eastern side to Lough an Loirg, and beyond to Crocknalaragagh and Muckish. Once I had taken the walk in from the R251 to Altan Tower and up to Aghla More, the rest of the tops were easily reached too. Fantastic walking on a good day, and it was on to Aghla Beg for a fourth and last summit next. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/266/comment/18450/
