Speckled Hill
by Aidy  5 Mar 2014
I climbed Croaghbrack on the way back to the N15 from Cloghervaddy, on what had been an extremely wet day, with relentless downpours, only just cleared. I think the name means "speckled hill", and from Cloghervaddy, it appeared that way due to extensive patches of rock. The flat, boggy ground between the two peaks, was the wettest I've walked on, and it felt like it could swallow you at any minute. However it wasn't far, and passing a small lough halfway across, I was soon on the short ascent to the top. The summit, like its neighbour, had a small cairn atop a large rock. The views were excellent around the rest of the Bluestacks and over Lough Mourne, but it was the shapes assumed by the rocks on the hill itself that made the visit really memorable for me. In drier weather, this hill, along with Cloughervaddy, would make a pleasant, short trip, starting by taking the forestry track just East of the carpark on the N15.
