A walk over the plateau to the SE Top (County Monaghans high point) and the main summit. Our visit was on a clear, settled day; ideal conditions for appreciating what a barrel of laughs this area would be with the mist down. No compass work was needed on our part, just the occasional glance at the map to make sure we were maintaining our direction, but in poor visibility you would need to be pretty accurate to link the (minimal) landmarks that make up the route. Conditions underfoot are damp rather than saturated, although it pays to stay alert. From some perspectives the ascent of Slieve Beagh is a terrible hillwalk. Do not be put off...it is rather memorable for all that.
