Re: Highest Point - Summit or not ?
I have read with interest the various posts re this oft vexed question as to what is and what is not the "highest point" in a county and on balance feel the argument put forward by kierongribbon is one I would share. Whatever may arise in the future, be it a movement of county boundaries or a natural mishap as suggested by ahendorff, I do feel that the "highest point" in a County is just that, and not some lower hill top. Sawel is the higest point in Derry and it shares this with Tyrone. While some argue that the actual high point for Tyrone is some metres from the trig pillar and is therefore a different "highest point", the "jury" is still out on this! This said I have not, apart from Paul Clements book "The height of Nonesense" seen any serious argument for replacing Sawel, or some point on it, with Mullaghclogha as the highest point/hill top in Tyrone. The same applies for Tuskmore SE Cairn and Slieve Anierin (high point/separate hill top). While the debate continues I suggest, to be sure, someone completing the list should take ahendorff's advice and climb both. Maybe what we need are two lists 1. Highest Point in County. 2. Highest hill in County then walkers can do one or other (or both). In short which ever appeals to them. What ever we do keep it simple!
