[RWD version 1 ] Setting out I had intended to include both Agow & Aganny, but as the weather deteriorated, I decided to abandon my trek at Agow where conditions were pretty grim. The starting point has enough space for a couple of cars.

Farm track
Continue up the farm track, which was very wet and muddy on the day I did it in March. It rises very gently up through woods and then on to open hillside and continues for almost 1.5km and is enlivened by a bubbling stream and a decent waterfall.

Waterfall
At the point where you see an old wall running perpendicular to the track on the left, with a short tree growing alongside it, leave the track and head directly up the grassy slope.

Leave the track here.
You should be able to pick up a faint trail running parallel to a tiny stream – this continues on and off all the way to the summit, which is a further 2km to the north, the slope gentle and the going underfoot pretty walkable. You will also pass what looks like a small, ancient circular structure, and a pointy marker cairn along the way. A tall cairn marks the highpoint.

A couple of hours up and down. Back at your car, it is worth making a small detour off the R280 to the viewing point for Glenade Lough, which is just a couple of minutes’ drive.
