Starting at the place suggested by csd I enjoyed a ramble up to Gruggandoo. This route brings you along a track before passing through various gates and coming out onto an extensive meadow below the highest area of Gruggandoo. There is extensive sheep farming along this route, and the sheep made an active effort follow me on my way. They could easily have slipped through one of the gates behind me if I wasn’t ready for them! There is a pond near the summit and there are good views across to Tievedockeragh, Rocky Mountain, Eagle and Shanlieve. Other than that this is an unremarkable summit. However the relative quietness of these small hills can be an attraction in itself, and it’s certainly worth a ramble up for the views if you’re passing by. Just don’t let the sheep out!
