Last but by no means least in my list of Donegal NW tops.
by Harry Goodman  6 Oct 2015
I climbed this hill on 25 Oct 2012 as my final top in the MV list for Donegal NW. I parked at a large pull in area on the right (S) side of the minor road C0744301200 B and then went NE along the road for 600m to where a gate crossed it. Once past the gate I initially followed the line of a fence left (N) up the rough grassy slope but soon abandoned it and headed NE directly for the top. Although from the map the high point seems to lie on or immediately S of a fence crossing the summit area I found that the fence actually crosses along a small trough with two rocky upcrops on either side of it vying to be the high point of the hill. The difference in height appears minimal but in my view the higher point lies on the upcrop to the N side of the fence. However given the very close proximity of the two tops to each other it is very easy to visit both. As Garmin has already commented in the short summary this small hill is a marvellous vantage point for a sweep around the main hills of NW Donegal and even further afield to the Sperrins and Dartry Mts. However the view SW is perhaps the best uninterupted view of the Bluestacks I have experienced in Donegal extending from Barnesmore Gap NW across the main ridge, past Gaugin Mt to Agla Mt. and the small rocky profile of Scraigs. Nearer at hand directly in front of the ridge was the distinctive small hill of Altnapaste. Indeed this panorama is the only uninterupted view from Culliagh SE Top. What I did not anticipate or expect was the extent of wind turbine coverage in this small compact group of tops. They total in excess of 60 and there are signs of more to come. As a consequence any views other than SW are restricted by this large wind farm. As a walk up and down can be done in an hour I decided not to return by way of ascent but rather extend my walk by following the fence line down NW over relatively easy ground and then SW over a patch of boggy peat hags to Pt. 358 (Three Tops ) C0700301730 C and a couple of nearby lower but distinctive satellite tops which I assume give the higher top it's name. I then dropped down SE past a small copse of trees on the righjt to join the road C0736501140 D where I turned left and back to the car a mere 100m along. A most enjoyable ramble of some 4.5k over gentle slopes comprising a mix of grass, some boggy areas and a few unexpected rocky tops. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/879/comment/14847/
