Approached Moylenav from Glendowan Beg area taking track (waterlogged in places) via minor top of Croaghnagapple, descending to head of Sruthangarrow and onto Croaghcullin & Crockscallabagh before short ascent to Moylenav's summit. Excellent views all around from Crockscallabagh onwards. Moylenav provides tantalising views of Bingorms sheer cliff-face & Sliabh Snacht across the R254. However, my route on the day took me down into the boggy valley leading to Meenabog Hill. One can't help but feel that the Anglicised name for this hill provides a better description of its topography than its true Irish meaning. I was glad to get off it and across the road to continue circuit via Farscallop & An Liathan Mór. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/377/comment/3071/
