This route takes in three of the Moylussa group. It starts near Glennagalliagh Mountain, where a bog track allows you to pull your car off road. The presence of a multitude of quad bike and scrambler transport vehicles meant I had to pull my car quite far up the track to turf cuttings near the summit bog of Glennagalliagh. This might be avoidable on a weekday. From Glennagalliagh a good track can be followed to the col between Cragnamurragh and Moylussa. The track leads quickly to Cragnamurragh before returning to the col. The track to Moylussa become an absolute quagmire (no doubt aided by said quads and scramblers). It is genuinely difficult so best to take your time and navigate slowly and carefully. There are two contenders for the high point of Moylussa, so I visited both. The generally accepted higher one has some signs and other stuff scattered at the top. My route returns to Glenagalliagh and my car. Three summits visited, with the first (Glenagalliagh) being the car park on this ocassion.
