Southern top of a wonderful plateau
by gerrym  27 Jan 2013
Agow Top is at the southern end of the wonderful plateau dominated by the shapely figures of Keeloges and Arroo to the north. This does not diminish its part in the drama of a complete round of the plateau and it is a worthy additional challenge worth the 4km return trip from Aganny Top.

My visit was on a cool day in May, with dry conditions and a clear sky providing glorious walking. These conditions are what tempted me to include Agow Top as part of a round taking in the other 4 tops on the plateau.

Access was from Glenade, where there is parking at St Michaels church (803503 A) leading to Keeloges, Arroo, Aganny Top.........from here there is a leisurely drop of 100m to Lough Nabrack, although I counted 6 loughs in total standing out brilliantly amongst the brown shades of the hillside. A fenceline comes in from the left and can be followed straight to the northern finger of Lough Nabrack, where stiles aid progress. This feels really obtrusive as there is a distinct lack of fences in the area, adding to that wilderness feeling.

It is then not too taxing a walk to the summit area itself......there is a cairn prior to the summit and a large collapsed area of boulders which may indicate an older cairn. The summit cairn itself would receive high marks indeed for its professional build, as would the views that surround it. Across the waters of Donegal Bay to the fine Bluestack Mountains. Barnesmore and the equally fine Sperrins. Dough Mountain dominates immediate views west but beyond The Playbank and Cuilcaigh are easily picked out as they vie for top spot. A continued sweep brings rugged Benbo and the Castelgal Hills and of course the big daddies of Truskmore and Tievebaun.

There are three little loughs just below the summit and I dropped off past one (Lough Agow) to pass by the opposite end of Lough Nabrack on my way back to the flanks of Aganny Top and then Aghalateeve, before the descent of Keeloges. When looking back along the plateau to Arroo it does seem like a long way (about 5km), reminding that it is a good days walk over this plateau.......but it is a good days walk.
