Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  21 Aug 2023
There is parking for several cars at the entrance to Cronalaght Windfarm. The entrance to the windfarm is gated, but there is a pedestrian gate allowing access for walkers. Proceed up the tarred access road for 2km, taking you to the unlisted Cronalagh hill. Veer NE then for another 2km, at first losing some height and then slowly gaining it again, crossing multiple large peat hag areas along the way. At point B87695 25489 starA turn directly east another 1km up the gently rising slope, taking you to the high point, which is marked by a large cairn.
