All a bit of a slog but well worth it!
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  16 Aug 2012
Park off road at B9331412721 A just S of a bridge over the Sruhancrolee stream . If conditions are clear look up SW to the sharp pointed knoll at the E end of the rocky escarpment rising above L Barra. Go NW up the grassy hillside and gradually swing W to gain the high ground B930128 B at the back (N) of the pointed knoll and some 500m along from the start. Go NW up the slope and then down to the saddle below Crocknasharragh B906133 C, some 2k in all. Change direction to SW and a further 1k up the slope arrive at the summit marked by a trig pillar and an adjacent cairn. Views fron this relatively small hill amidst the higher tops of Derryveigh are both exceptional and extensive. Return by way of ascent but note that the route can be used either as the start or finish in a round which would also include Crocfadda and Crockfadda NE Top.
