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 starE (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 starF (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.
