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.

More names confusion from our OS friends
by Colin Murphy  13 Jun 2010
Agree with Vikinghar that the OS maps are a mess with regard to the names etc in this area, with Ardloughnabrackbaddy being attributed to two tops, one of which is actually the highest of the three Aghlas (carrying the appendage 'South on MVs). That aside I found this hill lacking in any great interest or astheic, aside from the views it provides. But having said that, it is so easy to bag if your're doing the three Aghlas, you might as well nab this one. You'll be up and down it in fifteen minutes.
