Picture: Looking N to Arroo Mt from large cairn near the summit of Aganny Top
Worth visiting as part of a round of other tops
by Harry Goodman  8 Jun 2010
Climbed Aganny Top on Saturday 22 May 2010 as the second hill in a round that also included Arroo Mt, Agalateeve and Keeloges. (For first part of the route see my comments on Arroo Mt.) The walk out to Aganny Top from Arroo Mt is some 3km through, around and over a series of small peat hagged tops, some with a cairn. On the day we were there it was fine and clear so route finding was not a problem. However in poor visability it would be very easy to become disoriented and use of map and compass, backed up by a GPS, would be essential. From the top of Arroo Mt we made our way S to a cairn on a small rise overlooking Lough Arroo G8364750768 M and then around the W (right) side of the Lough. Having noted a standing stone marked on the OSI map and, as it was more or less en route, we sought it out at G8393850070 D before heading for Lough Aganny and Aganny Top (Pt 482). Along the way we came upon a surprise find, a fully completed millstone lying undisturbed where it had been fashioned out of the rock yet there was no apparent evidence of any quarrying in the area G8444849040 N. A little further on at G8447749032 F, on a raised area, was a very substantial cairn above and to the N of Lough Aganny with Aganny Top still some 300metres away on raised ground to the S across the small Lough. Strangely the spot height indicating the summit (Pt 482) is not marked by a cairn G8445048751 G and is completly nondescript and undistinguished in any way. Indeed looking back across the Lough to the large cairn it appeared to stand on a higher elevation than Pt 482 but perhaps this is an illusion caused by the presence of the large cairn. While we were on Pt 482 a walker came to the large cairn and, without a second glance in our direction, proceeded on his/her way clearly satisfied that the cairn marked the top of the hill. From Pt 482 we also walked a little further S to yet another small cairn at G8464448448 O. From this hill there are splendid views W across the long flat topped Aghalateeve to Truskmore and Tievebaun and S to the knobbly ridge of the Castegal Mountains. From here we then headed down a heathered covered slope in search of our next objective Aghalateeve. I suspect that given its location Aganny Top is a hill that not many people will seek out and climb in its own right. However it is well worth a visit as part of a round which includes some other tops. Linkback:
