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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/554/comment/6015/
