Referred to as Sliabh cCarbatach in the Annals of the Four Masters (entry for 1567 AD). The element carbad/carb is found in a number of Irish place-names. Although carpat can mean a chariot in Old Irish, many of the places in question have boulders and this seems more likely to be the sense of such place-names in mountain areas.   Mullaghcarbatagh is the 512th highest place in Ireland.

From the summit of Mullaghclogher I followed the fence to the summit of Mullaghcarbatagh. The col is wet and boggy and the mist enveloped us. It was tough going with the gusting wind. Just before the summit there is tremendously steep ground littered with boulders and stones. Thankfully it is short! Although it was beautiful it was slippy and wet underfoot. Great care required here. When we reached the aforementioned perfectly formed summit cairn the mist rolled away and we had a glimpse at some of the wonderful views. I have so many photographs; I didn’t know which one to use! You could clearly see the ridges to the south, the Plumbridge communications mast. The wind far north of Plumbridge, the strule/foyle river and just before the cloud closed in again I think I saw Moor Lough in the north east. We didn’t go over to the northern cairn as we were exhausted walking against the wind. The cloud was low so views were not far reaching. We dropped off the summit, following the fence line along the ridge. We could see the track and road which we would be joining later. We passed the forest and made our way to the summit of craigacorm (GR515933 B) and turned east, still following the fence. This took us to the junction of the track and road. We crossed the gate and walked down to the road junction with the Glenelly road (GR507214 C). We then walked east back to the car park. The walk down was pleasant enough, the wind had subsided, and the cloud had settled over the two summits we had been on. A total journey time for Mullaghclogher and Mullaghcarbatagh, of 5hrs 30mins, including breaks and time spent searching for Fr. Devine’s Well!. Great walk, great scenery and an overall great day out!
