Known as Torr by the people who live on the N side of Lough Macnean (Kay Muhr). The name Thorne Mountains, which appears on several 16th and 17th century maps of Ireland, Connacht and Ulster, would seem to have some connection with Thur Mountain.   Thur Mountain is the 761st highest place in Ireland. Thur Mountain is the second most easterly summit in the Dartry Mountains area.

Geologically interesting hill with good aspect.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  23 Jun 2023
One approach is from the east. It is possible to drive to point G98701 40551 starA, although care is needed on the occasionally potholed road, and you must open and close a gate at one point, but no signs deny access. From there the summit is just 650m to the west although an ascent of 140m is still necessary. Cross some turf workings and begin to ascend through steeper terrain, mostly grass and the occasional boulder, aiming for G98146 40223 starB, then turn NW up the short, but steepest final stretch. The summit area is an interesting mix of short heather and flat rocks dotted with shallow pools. The high point is a distinctive, lone, small boulder topped with stones. Return journey to car 1 hour.
