We parked in Kylemore Abbey, which did not serve us as we were told we were not allowed to climb from this side, so we walked about two miles along the busy N59 before we could find a convenient place to start our ascent. We found out later that there is room for at least two cars further on (E) along the road. Doughruagh is a beautiful mountain despite its rather modest height, steep from all sides and the summit area is really worth exploring to enjoy all the different viewpoints. Most of the climbing is done once you have reached Garraun S Top, but then it is definitely worth continuing to Garraun SW Top (Altnagaighera). The rest of the walk is a stroll with great views, particularly if you are lucky enough as we were to be able to see Mighty Mweelrea totally uncovered to the N !! Please note that the beginning of the descent is VERY steep on that side of Benchoona and I would definitely not recommend this route down under wet conditions or poor visibility. Two cars needed.
