Nothing to see here...

Like many of the Sperrins, Craigagh is an unremarkable hill with a flattish top. Topographically the only interesting part is the gully that separates it from the northern flank of Spelhoag (seen in photo). Luckily it is easily reached in about 20 minutes along a track that stretches from the road to the very top. A bagging exercise mostly. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/586/comment/23315/
