Short Summary created by markmjcampion, Colin Murphy, simon3  23 Dec 2020
Ben Lugmore is a prominent steep-sided rocky peak of great character which towers above the Doo Lough valley is SW Mayo. There are dangerous 600m cliffs on the NE side and marginally less steep southern slopes. The awe-inspiring close up views of precipitous drops and far-below valleys are balanced by widespread views further afield incl Achill, Nephins, Sheffreys and Conemara.
Take great care in bad weather.
W. Park at L84117 65157 starA, just S of Fin Lough. Cross bridge to a lane and just across the cattle grid there is an opening into a field. Head N until you are near L84029 65936 starB then turn NW and continue for 1.5km. The terrain on the lower slopes can be quite difficult but eases near 200m contour. Ascend steeply to reach the E spur near L83656 66937 starC. Follow the obvious ridge for over 2km to reach the summit pile of stones. Allow 3hrs
Another starting point for the E spur is at L84552 67125 starD. Follow the SW lane to cross the river at a footbridge which may require permission to use. Follow a feint track as it winds its way onto the spur.
N. Start at the N end of Doo Lough L82842 69509 starE. Head SW and follow the stream up to a large corrie. Take “the ramp”, a steep, broad and grassy traverse up to the right. Once out on the broad flat ridge go E to Ben Lugmore W Top and, being conscious of v steep ground on both sides, proceed to BL itself. Allow 2.5hrs+
Your can also do BL as part of the Mweelrea Horseshoe.
