Started from the handy carpark mentioned. Two roads head uphill towards Barnes Gap, take the one with the Central Sperrins Way marker. Farm life abounds with sheep, dogs and tractors competing with the sounds of birds, water and wind (not mine). From this higher road are able to look down into the deep cleft that is Barnes Gap and wonder at the forces which shaped this area in the past. There is a rather ornate farm gate just before track continuing the Central Sperrin Way - i crossed this and followed the fence steeply uphill. Views are limited here with Mullaghcarn dominating to the S. With much puffing and panting behind the views open out on the crest of the hill as the Donegal mountains and the higher line of Sperrin hills to the N appear.
The fence is a failsafe guide and a little veer to the R will bring the top in 45 mins. No grand markers greet the walker - only the more than grand views. The view E is only revealed with the last few steps to the top - to Carnakilly and S. Gallion with the Belfast Hills only just getting a look in between. The whole line of the Mournes was laid out from sea level to the height of Donard and then a jagged ride with deep drops into Hares and Windy Gaps. A cloud topped Muckish and Derryveagh mtns joined thier neighbours in the Bluestacks in my visual party. The biggest present was the whole line of the N Sperrins with the variable weather providing sun kissed tops beside those in darkness or light mist. For its modest height this hill has monstrous views from one side of Ireland to the other. Definitely a case of less being more. I headed on along the central spine of the Sperrins in what turned into an 18.5 mile tramp around Glenlark. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/647/comment/3005/

(For the start of this walk see my comments on Craignamaddy). We started the second loop of our Central Sperrins walk to Mullaghbolig and Clogherny Top at H5517389565 A, the same start point as for Craignamaddy, the first loop in our figure of eight. We took the good track going SE up and around the western flank of Mullabolig for some 1.4k to the gate (near a large boulder) mentioned by three5four0. On the way we had for some time the company of well over 100 sheep streatching back behind us in a long line along the track. The gate is at H5631389301 B and leads into a field bounded on the right and left side by a narrow line of pine trees. Indeed this field and the two lines of trees are in view some distance ahead when you come to the high point in the track and it starts to flatten out in a long arc around the hill. From the gate we went diagonally up the grass to cross a fence and then on up the heathery hillside to the top of the hill (H5689489412 C), near to or at a fence junction marked by three closely set posts. The exact position depends on which clump of heather you feel is the highest. From here for anyone wishing to go back to the start the loop can be completed by following the fence NW and then W back to the road. In our case we wished to continue NE and then E along the fence line to Clogherny Top some 3k away. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/647/comment/4537/

Part of a Central Sperrins ridge walk starting at Barnes Gap carpark IH 55121 90470 D and taking in all tops from Mullaghbolig to Corratary Hill IH 63802 92749 E , finishing at Tourist information board IH 64272 93712 F on mountain road off Corramore Road, south of Sperrin, a distance of 12k. First 2K on Magherabrack Road and track starting at IH 55167 89566 G around southwestern side of Mullaghbolig's western spur before breaking onto open hill and making way onto it's spine and short walk alongside fence to summit. Summit is marked by intersection of three fences. From here the remainder of the walk across the top of this central ridge is in clear view (see picture). Walking is relatively easy along sheep tracks close to fence, although from time to time it is necessary to veer a few metres south of fence to avoid wet areas. Going remains good until near end of walk on approach to Corratary Hill where the ground becomes wetter, heavier and boggier. There is only minimal loss of height to contend with between the various tops. In fact there is little more than 420m of ascent across the length of the walk. The ridge itself is rather featureless but the views - north across the beautiful and verdant Glenelly Valley to the High Sperrins, where Sawel, Dart and the 'Mullagh's form a wonderful backdrop and - south towards the Sperrin's lower hills and ridges are excellent.

Started from the same car park as gerrym & eflanaga for Mullaghbolig, but kept to the Central Sperrins Way for a further km after Barnes Gap, to a gate at 563893 H, beside an enclosed field. Where it was a short walk to the summit of Mullaghbolig. Continued on following the fence out to Clogherny Top, crossing several more fences and soft ground on the way. Returned the same way as the ascent, in a mixture of rain, sleet then snow, with the only other tops being visible being the ones on the fence posts. Followed the Central Sperrins Way back to Barnes Gap and then round the southern flank of Mullaghbane. (see Craignamaddy for the continuation of this walk) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/647/comment/3484/
