Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  15 Aug 2012
From Fintown take the minor road B929025 A and go S to B9283600584 B where off-road parking for one car is available on the left in front of a derelict building. Follow the fence line up NNE to it's crest at B9293801146 C. Cross the fence and go NE up the broad ridge by either crossing the various rocky crags or by weaving in and around them to gain the summit marked by a cairn atop a rocky upcrop. There are splendid views N to the Derryveagh and Glendowan Mts. and S to the Bluestacks. While route finding on Scraigs would not normally be a problem, care should be taken in misty conditions as the many craggy tops and bumps of the ridge could cause some navigating problems for the unwary and it is important to ensure that a walker does not wander off to the N side of the hill faced as it is by cliffs falling almost vertically down to L Finn. A short walk of 2.3k up and back. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/708/comment/5467/
