Harry Goodman on Clogherny Top, 2010
by Harry Goodman  26 Mar 2010
We climbed this hill on 19 March 2010 as part of a looped walk over the MV listed tops in the Central Sperrins. For the start of the walk see my comments on Mullaghbolig. Having arrived at the top of Mullaghbolig we decided to walk some 3k NE then E, over a couple of minor bumps, to the undistinguished summit of Clogherney Top. While we had fine views across the Glenelly Valley to the long W to E ridge of the High Sperrins and the walk was pleasant and not difficult the question you must ask yourself is do you really want to scale this uninteresting top, unless of course like me you wish to climb all of the MV listed tops in the Sperrins. This said, if the walk is included in a round of the other immediae hills (as we did) then you may find it a satisfying walk overall. Once there, rather than go back W along the ridge to the start we opted to head down NW across the hillside and then across a deep gulley and stream to pick up a rough stone and gravel track (not marked on the OS maps) about 1k from the top. This was at H5824191350 A. From here it was a short walk down to the road (H5821091657 B B). To complete our loop we turned left and, keeping left at any road junctions, had a 4.5k walk back to our starting point at H5517389565 C. The high elevation of the road above the Glenelly valley made for a very scenic walk back. For anyone who simply wants to climb Clogherny Top, and I hasten to add I am not recommending it as a quality walk, the track up from the road where we exited (H5821091657 B B) on a sharp corner beside a new looking stone bridge would make for a simple bag of this top. The full loop walk including Mullaghbolig was just over 10k . For anyone wishing to follow the full figure of eight looped walk, starting with Craignamaddy on the west side of Barnes Gap, the walking distance is approximately 18k (see also my comments on Craignamaddy) Trackback:
