A Quick Fix
by Aidy  22 Nov 2013
Events conspired to keep me out of the hills for almost a month, and I had only a brief window today, so decided to try for a couple of short walks; Croaghan Hill, and Owenreagh Hill in Tyrone. It was a beautiful, bright, frosty morning when I turned the car off the N15 onto the Haw Road to access Croaghan. The road soon turned into a rough lane and I parked where another lane branched off to the right, allowing parking without blocking the way. I proceeded on foot straight along the lane until it turned to the left, where I climbed a rusty gate, and crossed two fields and barbed wire fences on the way to the summit. At the top of the second field I stayed left (West) of the forested area and entered a whin covered final section. There was a vague path alongside a fence which got me through the whins, although not without a few "jags". The summit with trig pillar was to the left of this path and meant another fence crossing.

The views from the top are great for such a small hill which only took about 20 minutes to ascend. The Bluestacks and the Sperrins could be seen and there were expansive views over Strabane and East Donegal. Highly recommended if you are short on time and need a fix.
