Straggrady Mountain
by Harry Goodman  5 May 2023
On 7 April accompanied by my son-in-law and two of my grandsons I decided, with two cars available to us, to tackle this hill as a linear walk from the R255 near Glenveigh to the N56 near Creeslough. We started at a small area of roadside parking C06425 22699 starB and headed NE. We had no difficulty in crossing the small stream shown on the map, although this could be avoided by walking S to where it crosses under the road. Initially the gradual climb of some 2km to the top of Drumfin Hill C07700 23500 starC was quite boggy (gaiters recommended) but the ground improved as we started uphill. Apart from some early signs of a grassy track we were mainly on trackless ground covered by tussocky grass, heather and some rock. Just beyond Drumfin Hill Top we came upon scenic Lough Acrappan set among rocky terrain with splendid views of Muckish to the NW and the full line of the Bluestacks from the fine cone of Gaugin round to the Barnesmore Gap. From here we had a a further gentle climb to the top of Stragraddy Mountain, C08263 24554 starD still marked by the couple of stones mentioned by simon3 in his comments. The views from the top include the Sperrins to the NE and a fine sweep of the Donegal Hills from the Bluestacks round to Muckish. At this point rather than go down to the minor road mentioned by simon3 we headed N across the top to a rounded secondary top C08291 24760 starE also marked by a small cairn of stones where we had splendid views N over Creeslough, Ards Forest and the sweep of coast from Horn Head round to Sheephaven Bay and Rosguil. From here we descended NE down an obvious grassy and at times boggy gulley to an old abandoned farmhouse (where we crossed our first and only fence of the day) and then made our way out to the N56 and our car C08891 25227 starA. This short walk of some 4.25km, over untracked and at times boggy ground, could comfortably be done between two and two and a half hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/968/comment/4607/
