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.

People disregard Slievenaglogh generally because of its lack of height and challenge to the seasoned hillwalker. But, there is more to keep you interested on this little summit than on many bigger peaks. For one, it is another one of those fantastic windows to the past which the Mournes like to throw at us - much like Meelmore, Donard and the Analong Valley, there is abundant evidence of the work of the mourne stone mason , none more so than a wonderful couple of millstones which never quite made it to the mills despite the obvious hours of effort put into their creation. I say two because I've been told there are - as yet I have only located one (if anyone knows plaes inform me!). The pic shows how Slievenaglogh is a very nice approach to Commedagh especially on the north side of the wall (one of the many mourne wall stiles has been placed just below the summit to make this option easier).
