This peak is a small knoll between Lough Nabrackbaddy (Loch na mBreac Beadaí) and Lough Feeane. The name is correctly positioned on Discovery sheet 1, but incorrectly on sheet 2 (on which it should not appear).   Ard Loch na mBreac Beadaí is the 646th highest place in Ireland.

A worthwhile diversion
by Harry Goodman  2 Feb 2016
Having noted by vikinghar's comments that this top in walking terms is hardly worth the "bagging" and having also noted at the same time the high rating given to it by members of mv's I thought I should go and have a look for myself and make up my own mind. As I was in the Derryveagh Mts for a walking week-end with my Club and as one of my planned walks was to go from Muckish Gap to Altan Lough over Crocknalaragagh and the Agla's, I decided to include Ardloughnabrackbaddy (Pt 473) as part of my route.
On 1 May 2010 we approached the hill directly from the top of Agla Beg South by descending W with a touch of N to the coll above Lough Feeane B9575024400 A and then through a dense patch of peat hags, before climbing gently to the top which is marked by a small cairn. On the day we were there we had fine views N over the coast and lowlands around Falcarragh, across to Tory Island and W over Carn Traonach and Bloody Foreland Hill. Although I had been across Crocnalaragagh and the Aglas a number of times in the past I had never diviated from the usual route SW around Lough Feenane before climbing up to the top of Agla More.
The difference this time was that our climb over Ardloughnabrackbaddy (Pt 473) allowed us to head down SW across the out flow from Lough Feeane B9525024400 B and then across a large patch of rock debris to the grassy NW spur. Once there we climbed steeply up to the top before descending SE down the ridge to B9550023100 C and then SSW to Altan Lough. We then followed the winding track up to the R251. For anyone not keen on crossing rock debris this can easily be avoided by heading due west from Pt 473 directly to the NW spur of Agla More at B9480024500 D and then climb to the top. Having been across Ardloughnabrackbaddy I would commend this short diversion off the usual track between the Aglas as a worthwhile alternative and, at present, "less travelled" route.
