This is the higher of two peaks in the Mourne Mountains called Slievenaglogh, the other being situated further south, facing Slieve Binnian across the Silent Valley. This peak is east of Hare's Gap. On the western flanks is a huge granite boulder with a scooped-out face so that it resembles a giant's seat (David Kirk, 'The Mountains of Mourne - A Celebration of a Place Apart', p. 121).   Slievenaglogh is the 323rd highest place in Ireland.

Eastern Mournes Hike
by hbowman1  18 Sep 2011
I climbed this mountain yesterday as part of an A to B circuit walk. Starting off from Meelmore Lodge, we headed toward Slieve Meelmore via Spellack. The path is steep in places but upon summitting Spellack, very fine views opened up towards the Hares Gap and eastern Mournes. We continued toward the summit of Meelmore and then descended to the saddle between Bernagh and Meelmore. After lunch we followed a path around Bernagh to the Hares Gap. After a short break, we followed the Mourne wall towards Commedagh, passing Slievenaglogh and Slieve Corragh en route. Nice views were to be had of Bernagh, Binnian, Lamagan, Cove, Beg, Ben Crom, Doan, Muck and Slieve Croob. Upon summitting Commedagh we descended the ridge towards Slievenamaddy via Shanslieve. I would not attempt this in poor visibility as the gradient is steep in places. However, in good conditions, I would strongly recommend this walk. The view towards Newcastle and Murlough bay from Shanslieve, I think, is one of the best in the Mournes. We continued our descent towards Slievenamaddy before travering through Donard Forest, finishing in Donard car park. The full walk is 14km and took 6.75 hours. Highlights of this walk would include the views from Spellack towards Hares Gap, views from Slieve Corragh of Ben Crom reservoir, the views near Commedagh of Cascade River Valley and, above all, views of Newcastle from Shanslieve. The last section of Commedagh, Shanslieve and Slievenamaddy also offers a very nice alternative to the traditional Glen River valley. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/6517/

The Navan Hillwalkers (24.04.05) leave Commedagh behind and head for Slievenaglogh. The fascinating rock formations which lie ahead might present an occasion of danger in poor visibility, in which case it would be better to descend on the Silent Valley side of the Mourne Wall (the other side!)

This Slievenaglogh has a namesake west of the Silent Valley which although does not reach the 500m limit (445m) is worth atking in as part of a longer walk into the Mournes. As there are also three Rocky Mountains, only one over 500m, you could say that the are FIVE mountains in the Mournes with more or less the same name!

Slievenaglogh can be reached from Hare's Gap, or directly from the North if you park at J320 312 A near the end of the track that leads off from the start of the Trassey Track. From this point, follow the track south by the river, pass through the gate at the wall, then follow the stream up to the col between Luke's Mountain and Slievenaglough. You'll know you're near the summit when you see the wall. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/2131/

Slieves Turned Up

Slieves Turned Up

No one goes looking for the Hill of the Stone ... that I know of; well mostly. Because well sure ... it's barely there. If you're on a bagging mission or the telly is crap, you might find yourself on its shoulders, hovering over the upload route to mvs button but the irony is you may already have clambered over its hairless back many times before, to/from Commedagh the Watching Hill to/from Bearnagh the Gap Hill and so busy watching and not seeing, that the gap had been filled with Slievenaglogh.
If there is a noticeable change of rake, either up or down, it's not noticed by you because behind and in front are the objects of your mission. Bigger objects. Much bigger. By comparison, not even sure if I would call it a hill.
Still .... it has been described to me as the most beautiful place in the Mournes. Quite a handle given that fairly well everywhere is the most beautiful place in the Mournes.
If the title of this organ is anything to go by, something that seems to have fallen by the wayside over the years - mountains: views from them and views of them - there would be something to commend the Hill of the Stone. It is honest pleasant, decent and unassuming. From every one of the 360, it gives you a sensational run home if that notion takes you. And best of all, now you know where it is.
Start - as from Plan A: Commedagh or Bearnagh. Alternatively pick up a track from the Trassey River or from the head of the Crom reservoir.
Available now. Hurry or you'll miss it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/19799/
