This is often the first stop in completing the Mullaghanattin Horseshoe.
There is room to park by the road at at Tooreennahone Gortcloh (V747 746), where the road forks. 100m before this point is a farm, where you should ask permission, but the farmer has previously been happy to grant this. Walk 100m along the track to the right before heading up the hillside to the east, which is steep in parts. At A (V757 756) turn north and continue for about 300m to reach the summit, which is unremarkable - a grassy area with the high point marked by a few upright stones.

An Cnoc Riabhach
by Geo 1 Nov 2022
Last Friday the 19 Feb 10, 8 of us took this hill in as our first port of call on a circuit of "The Pocket". I have to admit I was fearful after hearing secondhand reports from my companions at breakfast of stand-off's with farmers. This, however proved an unfounded fear as our day began and ended with no difficulty. We had too many cars to park together as the Tooreennahone boreen is narrow and so we split them. One at B (V74219 74500) at the entrance to a farm on the right after making a left turn where the road on OS 78 turns from yellow to grey, and the rest at C (C (V74573 74921)) which is straight ahead from that junction. From the latter place we went through a gate on our right and up the hill immediately following a fence, although in places it is prudent to keep out a distance from that fence to pick easier ways ahead. We were on the summit of An Cnoc Riabhach in about 3/4 hour and had battled a strong wind and snow for 15 minutes of that climb, thankfully that was all the weather threw at us as the sun blessed us for the rest of the day. From here then we continued north and over spot height 594 and 683. The ground was mostly frozen but easy terrain to traverse. Next stop Mullaghnattin...

There's more than one way up this summit which is at one end of the Mullaghanattin circuit. For a larger group or any group that can fix a car split, one area to start from would be around Tooreenafersha (SE of the summit on the road leading south from the Ballaghbeama Gap.) I have heard of people who have gone this way though haven't tried it myself. I note that there are forest entrances at TurFrsh S (V76945 73535), TurFrsh M (V77285 74207) and Bo'Cul (V77355 74923) As always, ask permission if necessary.

A group of up to 5 or 6 can go down to the junction at Tooreennahone Gortcloh (V747 746). Ask permission at the last house before the junction. There is parking at B (V74219 74500) for 2 cars only just over the bridge on the lane SW of the junction. Start at C (V74573 74921) and head NE up the ridge to An Cnoc Riabhach. If you are doing the circuit, take a look at the access notes for Beann South Top.

The summit is a broad, unexciting, north-south ridge around 500m of which is over 500m high. The photo is taken along the length of the ridge, from the north. From the summit there is a particularly good view of Knocklomena to the east and views of most of the Mullaghanattin circuit. To the west there is a view of the ridge towards An Corrán (Finnararagh).
