Eastern Ox Mountains Traverse - Point-to-point Hike. Started at Glenwood CP, headed west through the forestry and then steeply up to the trig at Doomore (282m). On to Doobeg (250m) with fine view of the large ringfort on its northern slopes and then past the forestry over to the twin knolls of Crockavreen (285/283m). Down to the road that runs through the gap, then across the stream near a small but impressive waterfall. Followed the fenceline to the low cairns on top of Crockalaghta (309m). Due west from here to Spot Height 338m (Keola Keola?) which has a built cairn a foot and a half high. Good views from here across Lough Keola to the large beehive cairn on Spot Height 314m. From the beehive cairn followed the highest ground to the indistinct highpoint at Cabragh (344m - called 'Cloonagh' on MV). Headed north from here to Spot Height 335m and then down to the road. Light was fading but decided to take in a last top at Cloonagh (Spot Height 304m). Down to the forestry and followed it north to the point it met the Ardnaglass River which I followed to the road and then on to the Ladies Brae lay-by.
