Summary for Barraduff Mountain (Cnoc Bharr Dubh): Approach from the south west.

Picture: Kenmare Bay from the summit.
One approach is starting from Cummer L ( Cummer L (V896 635)), where there is just about parking for 2 cars. Just behind the parking spot a narrow trail starts in a NE direction and continues on and off until Castle Rock, which is a prominent rise and appears almost to be a separate top. After this you continue in a northerly direction across a flattish, occasionally boggy col, losing about 80m in height before ascending again, the last 300m or so becoming quite steep. The summit is unmarked but offers great views of Kenmare Bay and the surrounding hills. Return journey to car about 7km, taking about 2 hours.

Suggested access for the group of hills.
by simon3 26 Apr 2011
One way of accessing this summit and the other two hills in the area (Knockeirka and Killaha) is to start from where a narrow public road reaches its highest point at around Cummer L ( Cummer L (V896 635)). There is a small amount of parking here and access onto the open hillside in such a way that it is unlikely to cause any difficulty with landowners.

Picture: Looking down on Dromoughty from Barraduff
3 summits, 2 hours, 1 beautiful location
by Conor74 12 Jun 2010
Took this in as part of a circuit including Knockeirka and Killaha Mountain. See former for details of parking and ascent of that summit. At the top of Knockeirka, turned west south west and the route to Barraduff is easily visible on a clear day. In cloud or mist simply stay near the wire and post fence that runs from one summit to the other. Warning - this is met by a number of other fences along the way, though all relatively easy to get over. Going was very straightforward, perhaps gaiters useful at wetter times as we walked it in a very dry spell and even still had to skirt the odd boggy patch. The walk itself is lengthy enough, between 2 and 3 km, but fast going, took about 35 minutes to cross from Knockeirka to Barraduff. A short pull up at the end for about 50m, but very straightforward and rewarded with fine views over Dromoughty and down the Kenmare Bay. The summit is featureless, no cairns. Lovely area though, very remote feel to it. From there we moved on to Killaha Mountain, which again was easy to pick out on a clear day, and again a fence runs between the two which might be convenient in poorer visibility.

WARNING - (i) All 3 mountains contain a lot of fences for a good reason. Lots of sheep. This really is no place for a dog. At all. And (ii) the 2 hours was really for headline purposes, it took us about 2 hours 20 mins overall from car back to car, and we walked pretty fast, so allow a bit more time...

Alternative route for Barraduff Mtn
by three5four0 9 Oct 2011
Parked at Simons previously mentioned spot at Cummer L (V896 635) and followed sheep tracks up the ridge, behind the parking spot (more like a bay cut out of the slope), to Caste Rock. On the summit area of Castle Rock there is a fence junction, with one fence descending northwards, follow this into the col, pass the standing stone and climb the slopes of Barraduff Mountain. We continued on and took in the other 2 MV summits, giving around of 13.9 km in about 3 hours 45 min. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/832/comment/6579/
