An unexpected treat
by Harry Goodman  17 Nov 2011
Climbed Arroo Mt as part of a circuit which also included Aganny Top, Agalateeve and Keeloges. Having parked off road about 100m south we took a well defined lane up from Aganlish G8048152522 A. The area we parked at was along the boundary wall of a house but as no one was at home I asked a farmer tending sheep nearby if he thought I could park there and he said he did not see it as a problem as the car was off road and not obstructing access. The track up was good and finally petered out about 1k up. A little further along we came to some ruined farm buildings and just beyond these a stream. As we followed the stream uphill it formed an obvious and deep gulley which we then continued along on the high left hand bank to its end and then along a fence running uphill to a fence junction at G8243651919 B. We then continued up along another small but obvious gulley in the hillside to and up through an eroded area of peat hags to G8278051878 C some 2.5 k into the walk and just below the crest of the summit ridge. On reaching the crest we walked E along its broad flat top to the Trig Pillar and a substantial cairn G8330452069 D. For the purist the ground seems to be a little higher some 40/50 metres just SW of the cairn at G8328352047 E. Distance from start 3.17k.Views out over Lough Melvin to NE and the Bluestacks to the N were superb as were those W over Truskmore and S to the Castegal ridge. Rather than retrace our steps we then headed for S for Aganny Top. Linkback:
