MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Stumpa Dúloigh in area Dunkerron Mountains, Ireland
Picture: the Stumpa Duloigh massif from Broaghnabinnia
 
Highpoint above Lough Duff
Short Summary created by Onzy,  10 Sep 2015
Stumpa Duloigh itself is a highpoint at the head of a circuit of Gearhameen, above Lough Duff. Though in itself undistinguished, immediately north east of it and so close as to feel part of the same hill, is spot height 776, which plunges 300m into Lough Duff. The ridge approaching Stumpa Duloigh from the col with Broaghnabinnia is narrow in parts and point 776 is best not approached directly but rather worked around to the west.

This entire range of hills sits between the Reeks to the North and the Knocklomena to Boughil range to the south with the extended Dunkerron ridge lying to the south west and Molls Gap to the south east.

The hill can be reached from the Ballaghbeama Gap, over Knockaunattin, from parking around V755 781 A. However it is at its best as part of a circuit of Lough Duff beginning around V822 813 B where there are a number of spaces. From here you ascend alongside the waterfall behind Lough Reagh, up towards the col with Broaghnabinnia and along the ridge to Stumpa Duloigh and its SE top. From there you continue along a grassy boggy ridge to Knocknabreda, from where you must pick a descent to the valley over rock-studded grassy ground and around the occasional steep crag. About 5 hours for the circuit with an additional hour if Broaghnabinnia is also taken in.

At point 776, there is a memorial plaque to 2 walkers killed here in 2002. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/55/comment/4815/
