Cliffs and knife-edges, he fibbed
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  7 Jan 2013
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 (586845 A) opposite the entrance to a driveway where there is plenty of room, rather than at the T junction at (581845 B) where it would be nigh-on impossible for a car not to cause an obstruction. Walk back past the T junction to (574843 C) 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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/919/comment/5678/
