Summary for Crocknamoghil (Cnoc na mBuachall): Cliffs and knife-edges, he fibbed
Summary created by Peter Walker 2013-01-07 22:49:03
Even amongst the extensive collection of used teabags (much obliged Mr Cra) that make up the Sperrins, Crocknamoghil is an especially squeezed-out example. A failure in terms of aesthetics, the hill redeems itself slightly in terms of ease of access with the ascent on clear tracks almost all the way.
Start near to the end of a minor road running N from the B46, parking a few hundred yards along an unsurfaced section at (A (H586 845)) opposite the entrance to a driveway where there is plenty of room, rather than at the T junction at (B (H581 845)) where it would be nigh-on impossible for a car not to cause an obstruction. Walk back past the T junction to (C (H574 843)) where the track being followed is crossed at right angles by another (which runs in a significant groove at this point). On the left is a farmhouse: turn right to start heading uphill. The track goes through a metal gate after a while (two high red posts on either side) before arriving at the crest (a slightly optimistic expression) of the hill at another gate, this time wooden. The summit is on the line of the fence just to the right of the track a short way further on.
Views are pleasantly pastoral rather than staggeringly dramatic.

Just A Pleasant Walk
by Aidy 12 Oct 2015
I wanted something fairly easy as I twisted my ankle last week and it was still pretty sore, and I just wanted to see how it coped with any walking at all. To extend this short outing a little, I parked on the grass verge near the GAA pitch, around D (H60094 83719), and had a pleasant road walk through the countryside until I turned north at E (H59265 84045) following the track through more attractive countryside until I was due south of the summit. Here, instead of following the track on the looping route to the summit, I headed directly north for the top, across tussocky grass and heather. It was rougher ground than I wanted with a sore ankle, but I took my time and it held up. Maybe I was just glad to be getting any walking with the injury, but I really enjoyed the stroll on the track through the farmland and pine trees, and in the bright sunshine, I felt the views around the rest of the Sperrins were very good from the summit. Not a hill for pitting yourself against nature, or testing your limits, but just a nice walk. Linkback:

Climb it if you must !!
by Harry Goodman 26 Jul 2010
Walked up to this hill on Fri 23 July 2010 as one of four smaller Sperrins tops being sought out on a drive around the area. It lies to the N of the B46 going E from Gortin village and is accessed by a minor road running N from F (H578 835) to a T junction where the parking place is some 300 metres to the right along a minor unsurfaced road. At the outset I must record my sincere thanks to three5four0 for finding and giving co-ordinates for a suitable place to park G (H56406 84463), this was invaluable. The route we followed was the same as three5four0. After walking W along the minor road/track for about 1k we turned right at H (H57431 84362) up a farm track. We followed this up to a farm gate marked by two high red (July 2010) metal posts and then on up to a second gate near the crest of the hill. Once over we turned right along the track and followed it to a wooden gate which we climbed over and then continued on the track to the high point of the hill. This was along the fence line on our right and marked (probably more by accident than design!) by a high fence post much more robust than the others in the fence line I (H57904 85112). For anyone who cares to try it would be possible to climb up and down directly to the top from the parking place and save some 2k in distance but the going would be heavy over clumps of long grass, rushes and a number of barbed wire fences. The route up and down following the tracks was only 4.2k. This is a very easy short walk for anyone wishing to tick Crocknamoghill of the mv Sperrins list but otherwise it is a hill of little interest. Linkback:

three5four0 on Crocknamoghil
by three5four0 16 Jun 2009
There is a small space to park on the verge before a gate at J (H584 844), on the minor un-surfaced road, south of Crockanboy Hill. From here walk back n.west , through a road/lane junction. Follow the lane to C (H574 843) & turn right here following a lane then a track up hill (through a gate). The track continues (through another gate) turning right to & past the summit, the ground - a bank - on the south side of the track, looks to be a higher elevation than where the spot height is marked on the map, though still within the error margin of the map. Views are good & its a quick summit to reach. Descent is by the way of ascent, watching out not to go wrong at track junction (before last gate) that might not have been noticed on ascent.
