In my opinion the best route for doing this ridge is to park in a layby beside Crummie's Bay (C294392 A). It is situated just a few yards after the turn off for Dunree Fort. Then follow the road on round which runs parallel to the ridge itself via Milltown, Cartha and Hill Side. When you come to the end of this road simply turn left and walk steeply up to Mamore Gap and onto the small track on the left hand side, just past the small car park. This takes you to the top of the ridge. The first top is this one, Croaghcarragh. The photo shows Croaghcarragh from the Urris Hills. I think the group on top were from Magee Hillwalking Club.
