Tandragee (Tóin re Gaoith), the town in Co.

Tonelagee is the third highest point in county Wicklow.

Airy scenic vantage point with many routes.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, simon3  30 Jan 2021
This summit has much to recommend it, being high & cliffy, having the heart-shaped Lough Ouler below it and being part of the fine ridge from Mullaghcleevaun to Laragh. It overlooks much of the heart of Wicklow.
SW. Park at the Wicklow Gap O0752 0017 A and from there it's a quick and simple though stern climb of about 350m. The track starts slightly to the right as you cross the road. Allow 45 min.
NW. From the Glenmacnass Car Park at around O11402 02991 B, the route crosses the Glenmacnass River [prone to fast flooding] and goes via the NE top, a minor ridge. Allow 1hr+
N. It can also be tackled from Mullaghcleevaun via the notoriously boggy Barnacullian ridge and Stoney Top. If coming this way keep to the E of the ridge to avoid the worst of the bog.
SE. A sharp, steep ascent from the boggy area to the NW of the Brockaghs will also get you there. There is a not-very-obvious track which is worth looking for as you approach the steep ground. It's a continuation of the feint track from the Brockaghs so it shouldn't be too hard to find. Approx bearing is O09247 00822 C
SE. You can also summit via Mall Hill which itself can be accessed from a long forest track starting in Laragh. Leave the forest at approx O11382 00371 D and go slightly uphill to Mall Hill where there are some magnificent erratics to shelter behind if the need arises.
Notable tracks include track/2372, track/3809 and for the long distance trekkers among you track/3395 may well whet your appetite! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/4793/
