Geography

The mountain is the highest of the Slieve Mish Mountains and the 17th highest peak in Ireland.

Baurtregaum and the Slieve Mish mountains sit at the eastern end of the Dingle Peninsula. To the west of Baurtregaum is the peak of Caherconree (835 m), to the north the peak of Scragg (657 m), and to the west Glanbrack Mountain.

Etymology

The "three hollows" mentioned in the Irish name are probably the valleys of Derrymore, Derryquay and Curraheen, which cut into the sides of the mountain.
