More Bluestacks-lite...
by Peter Walker  20 Jun 2011
On the continuation to Croaghugagh from Lacroagh the fence continues along the ridge (at the junction on Lacroagh's west slope turn right, as the other branch dives straight down to the head of the valley). A wide shallow col ensues before the fence ekes a boggy passage up Croaghugagh's eastern ridge. In clear weather one can pick a more direct course up the gradually steepening slope to the left of the fence, but in poor visibility it may be better to wait for a fence junction before turning up the left branch; the top is a short stroll from the highpoint of that branch and marked by an upturned stone. The continuation to Croaghubbrid passes to the east of Lough Analf, which looks like a splendid spot. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/780/comment/6382/

Wildness Makes Up For Lack Of Height
by Aidy  20 May 2016
My third summit of four after Croveenananta and Lacroagh, and probably the best of the three for views, with similar views to the rest around the Bluestacks, but with new vistas also opening up to the west coast. It was more difficult getting here than I had thought from the map, due to some very boggy areas and deep heathery ground. But still not too hard, and the whole circuit is relatively short. Definitely worth the effort, and wilder than its modest height might suggest. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/780/comment/18539/
