Together with its neighbour Beann and their satellites, it forms a horseshoe ridge that confines a narrow glen known as the Pocket.   Mullaghanattin is the third highest mountain in the Dunkerron Mountains area and the 60th highest in Ireland.

Found this one hard to beat, in terms of being able to get up and down quickly, and get stunning views along the way. No long trek to get to the base, no slow ascent or difficult terrain, took us just over 2 hours to from car to peak back to car. Others have gone through the great scenery, and it IS great, so will just stick to the bare details. Parked car on Glencar side of Ballagh Beama, at V746 788 A, there is room for one car that can pull right in off the east side of the road. Crossed over a low fence on the west side of the tarred road and headed straight for a stream that flowed down the side of the mountain in front of us. There is a further stream that flows from a higher point on the south, nearer Ballagh Beama, but that looked quite steep. Should pont out that all streams were very low and easy to cross, but this was after a period of prolonged fine weather so cannot vouch for them in winter- judging by the channels they have cut they don't seem that wide. Followed the stream up along the side of the hill, crossing another fence that was very manageable and like the first had no barbed wire. The stream changes direction at V740 781 B, but we decided to head straight for the North ridge so continued on and clambered up on to the ridge at V738 780 C. From there on it is a straightforward walk south along the ridge to the top of the mountain. The last 100m or so is the hardest, nothing technically difficult but takes a lot out of the legs. Not sure it would be too easy to descend on this route though, was pretty steep in places. The ascent took about 1 hr 15 mins. From the summit we headed east along a well defined track to another summit at V744 774 D, which gives great views back across to the mountain. We then turned north and descended to V742780 E, and from there it is easy to see back to the road and the car. The descent took 50 mins. Trackback:
