Leave the R253 at A (G968 963) and follow a minor road S and then SW for 5 km to off road parking at LeathCrua (G93724 93563). Walk west along the road for 1.2km to B (G92626 93317) where a gate crosses it. Go through, leave the road and turn right (NW) uphill along a fence line on the right. Follow up to a noticeable rocky knoll at C (G91977 93632). This gives access to the long and broad summit ridge with the high point D (G91688 83565), still some 300 metres further along and passing a small lough on the way.. The ground is a mix of grass covered peat and some rocks. There are close up views S across the Reelan Valley to Silver Hill and Lavagh More and further along the Bluestacks ridge E to the triangular profile of Gaugin Mt. A walk out and back of 5km. Most likely however to be climbed as part of a longer circuit covering a number of tops.

ahendroff on Croaghubbrid
by ahendroff 8 Sep 2009
Climbed this stack of the well as part of a circuit from LeathCrua (G937 935) that took in Silver Hill, Croaghubbrid, Croaghugagh, Lacroagh and Crooveenananta. The approach to Silver Hill was generally SW over pt 567m. The low point of the walk E of Croaghubbrid Lough at E (G913 929) is an immensely peaceful iddylic location. It has that remote feel to it, surrounded by the Bluestack hills and the Binnacally cliffs and Gaugin mountain in the distance - a good camping spot. Croaghubbrid gives good views of the Blue Stack range to the S/SE/E. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/754/comment/4083/

Brilliant In A Circuit Of Nearby Tops
by Aidy 20 May 2016
The fourth and final peak in a walk that had taken in Croveenananta, Lacroagh and Croaghugagh. From Croaghugagh it was a steep drop down to the valley, east of Loch an Aillt, and then a short walk up to the long summit area of Croaghubbrid. I had to wander round several likely looking spots to be sure I had stood on the summit. Like the other summits on the walk, there were brilliant views around the rest of the Bluestacks from this remote top, although the good weather finally deserted me here and the rain started. A brilliant walk if the other summits mentioned are included. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/754/comment/18540/

Picture: Lough Nagreal with the Lavaghs behind.
Magnificent area abounding with views.
by Colin Murphy 13 Jul 2023
After a day of very heavy showers mixed with long sunny spells, I was fortunate to find myself descending from this top into the Reelin Valley just as the evening sun made another appearance, bathing the valley in beautiful light, with the Lavaghs visible towering over Lough Nagreal. Absolutely beautiful walk, despite the changeable conditions. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/754/comment/24006/
