Picture: Buckoogh from Birreencorragh South Top
 
Somewhat separated peak, great sea views, boggy top.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  13 Jun 2018
Currently the easiest route is from the SE. Park at the gate at G015 002 starA and follow the line of an old wall beside the forest up the hill.

The route from the east starts by parking at G014 015 starB at the side of the forest track. There is a lot of nuisance clearfell to cross before the easy going of the open hillside. Climb parallel to the forest boundary following a small stream, aiming for the rim of the small corrie lough backed by steep slopes. From the south end of the lough climb steeply above the lough, pick up a fenceline and follow towards the summit along the edge of the corrie.

It is also possible to go up from the SW following a ridge from L977989 starC. This has the advantage of great views on the ascent and descent.

The broad summit area is really unpleasant and muddy. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/299/comment/5059/
