Croaghgorm (Blue Stack) and Lavagh More in one route. Descent between the two was not too difficult, the way up Lavagh More was steep but grassy, so no real difficulties. I got a bit turned around at the top of Lavagh More and Lavagh Beg (very poor visibility), so ended up contouring around the hills.
Ground was not too boggy underneath. Start up next to the river could be boggy after rain.
Took me 6 hours, with few stops. Parking is pretty abundant at the school.
