A top seldom visited.
by Harry Goodman  9 Jun 2012
On 4 June 2012 I took the opportunity to do a round starting with Crockmulroney and then visiting Staghall Mt., Croaghnasaggart and Maumlack. I parked off road in a large cleared area with ample room for several cars at B9651915505 A. I walked back up the road NE for 350m B9680615754 B before turning left (NW), down the grassy slope and then climbing up to the right of a small stream coming down a very pronounced and rocky cutting in the hillside. On the way up I passed through the Glenveagh National Park deer fence. Previously I had climbed up this way when walking the NW spur of the Ulster Way from Pettigo to Falcarragh but had not taken the opportunity to climb Crockmulroney. The going initially was over grass and dry peaty ground which was crunchy underfoot due to the dry spell of weather. Clearly this would not be the case after prolonged wet weather. As I climbed I joined an old stone track (shown on the OSi map) and followed it along to B9654616388 C. I then turned up to the right (NE) over increasingly rocky ground to reach the unmarked top of the hill B9674716714 D on a small flat rocky area. While views were mainly restricted by the surrounding higher ground they were none the less enjoyable with the line of hills to the S, from Moylenanav to those above Lough Beagh, particularly so. Return would be by way of ascent but, judging by the small number who have indicated they have climbed this hill, I suspect it is seldom visited. Indeed it is more likely to be climbed, as in my case, along with a number of other tops. This said it is worth a visit and I am glad I included it as the first top in my round before going down NNE towards Staghall Mt. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/685/comment/6850/

eflanaga on Cnoc Uí Mhaolruanaidh, 2007
by eflanaga  6 Nov 2007
Starting point for this walk which was to include Dooish SE Top, Saggartnadoish & a number of other minor summits was at the back entrance to Glenveagh National Park IB 97095 15827 E (Point A) – 240m. There is room for a car (possibly two) to park just off the narrow mountain road (R254). The path immediately begins to descend through a gate in a Deer fence. I followed the track down as far as the first tree on the left (wonderful view down into the national park and across Loch Gleann Bheatha towards the castle. At this point I noticed, across the valley, a what appeared to be a track wending its way up Crockmulroney. I decided to descend to the valley floor just before the tree, crossing the river (stream at this point) and took the track, which was quite soft & wet in places necessitating walking to the left/right of it. I followed the track up as far as IB 96928 16132 F (Point B) – 243m and made a beeline for the hill’s rocky summit. This was obviously a detour which was not strictly necessary but the day was beautiful and I had plenty of time so I didn’t mind the extra plodding.

Good summit for Carn-baggers
by Colin Murphy  19 Jun 2017
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/685/comment/19571/
