Arroo is a townland in Rossinver parish, barony of Rosclogher. The name may be derived from Ir. áradh, ‘ladder’. Alternatively, it may be related to Welsh arro, ‘bank’. Either way, the name seems to refer to the steep slopes of Arroo Mountain which rise from the shore of Lough Melvin.   Arroo Mountain is the 498th highest place in Ireland. Arroo Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Dartry Mountains area.

Approached Arroo from the East side as mentioned by others. This allows for an unrestricted approach and somewhat gentle climb to the summit. As this approach starts from about 250 metres height, you are basically shaving off half the height to be climbed. Lovely views over Lough Melvin.
