From the summit of Croaghanirwore it is a short drop down SE to the river valley separating it and Croaghnageer (see for previous part of walk). The valley contains a sizeable lough and an area of eroded peat hags. I kept to the left of the lough to cross a stream and reach rockier ground. The climb up Croaghnageer is only 121 m on quite firm ground. As can see from the pic the slope is a steady climb with sheer drops further along the ridge to the right. The summit is a sizeable area with three separate summits. The main top is past a level area with a number of small pools and is rocky with a small cairn. There are of course extensive views in all directions. Donegal Town was clearly visible to the SE, windfarms were prominent on most axis as was swathes of forestry, especially W and S beyond the Barnesmore Gap. From the summit drop down SE again to follow a stream which has forced a way through the rock to create a deep and narrow gorge. As the ground steepens there are a number of rocky crags to negoiate over wet and slippery ground. Looking down can see another bleak river valley which also contains Barnes Lough with Croaghconnellagh rising steeply behind. There is a short area of tussocky grass to cross on the valley floor before reach Barnes River (this could be tricky to cross in very wet weather). I had a feeling of total isolation walking in this bleak part of the Bluestacks. The main N15 is only a hill away but if you were to injure yourself you just know that it would be one hell of a long wait for someone else to come along and find you. See Croaghconnellagh for last part of this walk. Linkback:
