Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  22 Nov 2011
For a direct climb of this hill go left off the R251 at B908 205 A and find a suitable parking place off road. Walk down the road and cross the bridge between Dunlewy Lough and Lough Nacung Upper. Follow the road S and then SW to cross over the Stuhannameel (stream) B902 189 B. Leave the road and ascend up the hillside SW to Pt. 352, B896 179 C. Continue up S, passing around tiny L. Croreagh and on up to Pt 455, B896 170 D and then 200m further along Pt 471, B896 168 E. Once there go SW for 500m to the top B89230 16636 F. From the bridge between the two loughs it is some 7k out and back. It is also possible to extend the route and take in Crocknafarragh SE Top and Crocknafarragh. Out and back adds just over over 3k to the walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/487/comment/5246/
