Track Rating ..
[RWD version 1 ] A fairly nondescript little hill that is often done in conjunction with the Binbanes. A waymarked ‘trail’ runs close to the summit, and this allows for access from north and south. I chose the northern approach. There is parking available for a single car by the side of the road, just before a lane leading up to a farm.

Carnaween in the distance - road visible on right.
There are ood views here of Carnaween along the valley. Continue along the road for about 800m – waymarker posts are also visible on the roadside. A passing farmer waved to me, so no problem at all with access. When you arrive at the end of the road, you will see a couple of gates. Take the gate immediately on your right, next to a picnic table.

Spot the trail...
The trail is to a large extent barely visible for most of the way, but there are plenty of posts to guide you – there’s one about every 50m. You can also follow a fence on your left for much of the gentle, grassy ascent. Where the fence meets another at around the 400m mark, Cloghmeen Hill will be about 400m to the SSW.

Cloghmeen from the highpoint of trail.
Ignore the stile and cross the fence (not barbed, thankfully) and proceed across boggy, peat-hagged terrain for about 350m to reach the highpoint, which is just across another low fence, and is marked by a sizeable boulder with a few rocks on top.
