Crockalougha
by Harry Goodman  26 Oct 2021
As I was in the area on 13 April to climb a couple of other hills and was passing Crockalougha,the last remaining top on my Local 100 List, I took trhe opportunity to climb it. I parked at the large cleared area off the B40 H7255099700 A, mentioned by dr_banuska and found it an excellent starting point for the walk. I took the good track directly across the road going NNE in the direction of Crockalougha. This path winds its way very gently across the hillside to peter out near some turf cuttings C7220700786 B in an area known as Altdoo or Black Glen. While the track is not marked on the OS 50,000 Sheet 8 it is clearly shown on the Sperrins Activity Map 1:25,000 Series a map that is invaluable for anyone wanting to plan routes in this area. From the turf cuttings I headed NW up the gentle heathery slope to the top of the hill, with frequent ups and downs and in and out through peat hags. As often is the case in the Sperrins the top is a large fairly flat area with, in my view, the high point C7156501164 C just before a fence running from E to W and then S along the forest edge. However to be sure of standing on the higest point one can quite easily tramp around the various competing clumps of heather! Like dr_banuska I also came across the small cement marker stone but am unsure of its purpose. As the Tyrone/ Derry County boundry line does not pass over this hill it must serve as a marker for some other purpose. Views N, E and W are restricted but the aspect to the S is much more open with the distant Belfast Hills clearly visable along with a number of Sperrin Tops. When there I also noticed a tiny lough to the NE down the slope by the forest edge but in the interests of time did not visit it. For a little variety, rather than totally retrace by steps, I decided to go SE directly down to my start point meeting the track taken on by outward route at C7224600220 D and followed it out to the road. An excellent short walk of some 4k that can be taken as a stopping off point on the way to visit other Sperrins Tops and comfortably coverd in about an hour.
