Harry Goodman on Truskmore SE Cairn, 2009

A few years back, on a climb of Truskmore using the TV transmitter access road (due at that time to general access difficulties) at G 74400 46800 A I included a walk out to the SE Cairn, the highest point in Co. Leitrim. This walk,for little effort, allows anyone climbing the County Tops to include Sligo and Leitrim in the same walk. Readers might also be interested in knowing that on the way down, at the Gleniff road, a friend and myself were approached by a landowner asking us where we had been and in particular had we been on his land along the west side of the valley. We told him that we had not and got into conversation with him about access problems around the Gleniff horseshoe. As with all situations there are two sides to every story and somewhere in the middle lies the truth. After lengthy discussion about the "whys and wherefores" of the position we had a better understanding of this particular landowners difficulties. As we were leaving he told us that we would be welcome, at any time to use his land to access the Horseshoe, which we did at a later date parking, with permission, at his farmhouse. I understand that this position may have changed and that the individual may have stopped objecting to walkers using his land. Given my earlier experience I would advise that anyone using a route, other than the TV Transmitter road, should check that there are no restrictions to access currently being applied by this individual or any other landowners in Gleniff. If access is open the opportunity to do the full Horseshoe Walk starting with Benwiskin is well worth the effort. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1054/comment/4020/
