Wilderness and isolation, yet within easy reach!
by Harry Goodman  9 Jun 2012
I approached Staghall Mt. (Cro an Lochain) from Crockmulroney summit as part of a round of four hills on 4 June 2012. (For earlier part of route see my comments on Crockmulroney.) I went down N over steep and rocky ground to B9675417442 A, where I crossed the Alteann Burn before starting the climb up Staghall Mt. The climb was initially up steep ground through large rocks and then more gradually over an expansive flat topped, peat hagged and rock slabbed plateau. The high point marked by a substantial cairn B9703018074 B. In spite of the flat top to this hill views were excellent, with Errigal and Slieve Snaght prominent to the W and Lough Salt Mt., the Urris Hills and Binnion similarly seen to the E. Both this hill and the next one which I visited, Croaghnasaggart, encompassing as they do large tracts of flatish upland give an impression of wilderness and isolation which is often lacking on many more prominent Irish mountains. From the top I then headed NNE down past the W side of L Naweeloge in search of Croaghnasaggart. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/495/comment/6851/
