The other one
by Peter Walker  5 Feb 2013
Given that Oughtmore probably translates as 'big mountain breast' it's not really a surprise that this most bosomy of mountain ranges has more than one of them. The lesser of the pair slumps in semi-isolation towards the eastern fringes, and is well-suited to a quick smash 'n' grab raid based on both its accessibility and lack of genuinely interesting features.

A quick way up not yet mentioned on MV starts from a minor road across the hill's southern flank. Start from said road just to the NE of a garden centre at (723832 D) where two tracks in parallel (marked as one on the Discoverer series) head WNW; one car can be carefully parked here without blocking access. Take the one on the right (as you look) and follow its (only slightly) overgrown course across the hillside. In short order a conspicuous plantation is reached (, with a fence running up the slope just before it. I chose to climb up the narrow strip of ground between trees and ironmongery: to follow the nearside of the fence will involve climbing over an extra fence higher up. Whichever course is taken involves terrain Sperrinaded to a familiar degree of tussocky cussedness, but things ease reasonably quickly, and once the forest edge turns WNW (724836 E) a quick hop over the fence gains the summit area with its cairn (although a very adjacent lump looks higher).

Time up and down - a lazy 45 minutes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/862/comment/14915/
