There is a private rpad into an area known as the Lost Valley, running from the Ballingeary-Bantry road in to the north of Doughill and Douce and out towards a small road under Shehy Mor. From this road the country is very open and you can make your choice of way onto either mountain or both. Douce presents a steep face to the east but os otherwise welcoming. There is a rocky ridge extending between the two which looks interesting. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/530/comment/4492/
