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 322nd highest place in Ireland.

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 starA 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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/2131/

Diamonds... what diamonds?

When your legs are tired, the steps leading from Hare's Gap up to Sleivenaglogh really can be very unforgiving. I was more than glad to step aside to let a man and his son pass and was absolutely delighted to stop and have a chat as the man revealed his deep-held physological fear of Bearnagh after he had come to an abrupt stop halfway up it's relentless slopes on a previous assault. Seems like we all have our own particular demons!
Slievenaglogh is a pretty unassuming mountain - I even somehow managed to miss the Diamond Rocks as I was busy concentrating on the bigger fish called Commedagh and Donard that lay ahead. The summit is adorned by a handy wee cairn from which the way ahead to Commedagh can be studied. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/4729/

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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/304/comment/19799/

Mournes Daytrip: Part IV (19/09/22)
by dino  3 Oct 2022
Following the Wall once again from Slievenaglogh East Top there was a nice climb up to the top of Slievenaglogh itself. Once again the summit is marked with a large cairn but the top itself is pretty flat with loads of large areas of exposed rock. Heading past the summit slightly I found one of these with just enough shelter to set up my gas stove to make tea. Lunch was had overlooking Hare’s Gap and Ben Crom Reservoir with a fine view of the craggy top of Slieve Bearnagh across the way. It would have been hard to picture a better lunch spot that day and despite the sharp edge to the light breeze that had picked up I had to force myself away and scramble down to Hare’s Gap to continue the day.
