Short Summary created by simon3, Harry Goodman  8 Nov 2020
Route 1: Park at Church G803 503 A on the R280 and walk south for 400m, to a gate and track on the left. Cross over and follow it E uphill towards the cliff face. Make for a gully with evidence of subsidence and, to the right of it, pick up a green lane that zig zags up the steep hillside. This leads up to the summit ridge and a good broad stoney surface near the SW end of Lough Keeloges G813 498 B. Turn left (N) for a short and easy climb up to the top. Route 2: On the Kinlough / Manorhamilton Road go E G796 515 C along a minor road to a sharp bend left. A lane on the right G801 515 D is the access route for the walk. In May 2010 a notice indicated "Private Road - No Entry". This most likely relates to vehicles but permission to walk up should be sought at one of the houses. The lane soon becomes an unsurfaced track that leads up towards the Keeloges escarpment and then skirts around it's N end. At G819 506 E, about 2.5k along leave the track and go SW (right) steeply uphill staying well clear of the escarpment edge on the right. Cross over a subsidiary top G814 504 F before continuing SSW to the summit. Views from the top are extensive. To the W are Truskmore and Tievebaun while N, beyond Bundoran across Donegal Bay, is Slieve League and the long ridge of the Bluestacks. Closer at hand E is the Arroo Mt to Aganny top ridge. A combination of the two routes provides a satisfying looped walk but adds 2.5k of road walking to between the start and finishing points.
