Picture: Derroograne views on a misty day.
Look east in Glengarriff and you will see Derrograne and its southerly spur (Cobduff) on the skyline. One way of getting to it is from the Priests Leap col at around Priests Leap (V9853 6108) or you could try off the Beara Way at around A (V553 963) (not tested)
The first mentioned route from the col is around 4k SW over useable ground though cut up in places by bikes or quads. You can choose whether or not to include the Priest's Leap summit en route.
Reaching the summit you will be rewarded with fine views over Bantry Bay including Whiddy Island and beyond.

Picture: View's over Bantry Bay from An Cab Dubh/Cobduff
Don't miss An Cab Dubh on the way up
by conorb 13 Jul 2020
Started on the bog road between Glengarriff and Coomohla Bridge and picked up the small track at B (V96717 54817) about 200m from the N71. Left the track where it intersects the Waymarked Way and continued upwards.
It's a fairly straightforward accent to An Cab Dubh/Cobduff which has fantastic views out over Bantry Bay and Glengarriff. From there it's a relatively easy hike onwards to Derroograne. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/554/comment/20814/

pdtempan on Derroograne
by pdtempan 22 Mar 2009
In this view, the hill in question is seen from Lady Bantry's Lookout, a viewpoint in Glengarriff Forest. Derroograne is the name of the townland seen here on the western side of the hill. Any information on the name of the hill itself would be very welcome. It is situated between the lower peak of Cobduff and the Priest's Leap. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/554/comment/3664/

Picture: View from Cobduff to Derroograne
A worthy Carn inclusion
by eamonoc 5 Jun 2022
A most rewarding ascent on a good day above Glengarriff Bay. Ascent from South see track 4678, route up easily navigated folllowing a fairly substantial quad track now and then, great views from Cobduff 378m, over surrounding area with Derroograne clearly visible to the North. Curiosity led me to follow the quad track all the way back to where it intersected the Beara Way, thankfully this quad track is not visible from below.

A first comment & visit on this MV hill
by three5four0 15 Aug 2010
From The Priests Leap, we followed the fence down to the col, passing a small lochan on the way. Once at the col you will notice, on the other side of the fence, that along the edge of the forestry there is a rough track. We walked along this track towards Derroograne and returned on the East side of the fence. Both have boggy stretches, but I would say the East side has the better ground over all.

It does not take long to reach Derroograne summit and it has fine views of Glengarriff Harbour. Return was by the way of ascent, to the small parking area by the Priests Leap. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/554/comment/6015/
