Claggan Mountain NE Top is the highest point of the ridge from the Mulrany area before you reach the Corranabinnias. Like the next small bump to its north east it's a scarp with a steep north facing side and a more gradual slope to the south and south east. Unlike many 500m summits in Ireland with low rates of visiting this place is deserving of more attention. The walk up from the Mulrany area with an unfolding coastline view on both sides and the mountainy northern views from this summit make the place deserving of more interest. It's on a good route to Corranabinnia.

For a couple of months in 2007, before the introduction of the 400m summits, this was the last summit in the list of 500m summits which had no comment.

A curiousity of the summit is that it is called the NE Top. The map marks Claggan summit as a point 2.2k SW.

Our photo shows the summit of Corranabinnia left and in cloud. Right just above the near ground is Anaffrin a continuation of the scarp that is Claggan Mtn NE. Dark and right of centre skyline is Bengorm NW Top (468m) Trackback:
