MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Croughaun Hill in area Comeragh Mountains, Ireland
Picture: View of eastern Comeraghs from Croughan Hill
 
Good views after a fairly short walk.
by simon3  25 Apr 2010
This fine little hill offers great views of the Comeraghs from the east. Park as jackill suggests at the forestry entrance. Walk to the end of the forest road at around S38091128 F and then through trees for around 160m at around 120 degrees when you will emerge at the side of the forest. Then walk uphill around 300m to arrive at the top.
Fine views await you. The picture is of the Comeraghs centred on Coumshingaun around 6km away. There are also views towards the Knockanaffrin ridge, Slievenamon, some of the smaller hills such as Carricktriss Gorse and even some of the coastline.
