Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  26 Jan 2014
This hill can be approached from the Torr Road running E from Ballyvoy. At D203403 A (spot height 255 on the OS Sheet) initially follow a track a short way SSE and then at it's end continue on up the hill for about 1km to join a fence on the right D215393 B heading up in the same direction. This can be followed up to the top a further 600 metres along. There is a fine Chambered Grave making the climb well worthwhile. On a clear day there are splendid views NW to Rathlin Island and NE to the Scottish mainland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1077/comment/15321/

Starting at the higher carpark at Murlough Bay provided a satisfyingly long and stunning approach to Carnanmore.

Quick moving blustery showers created an ever changing palette of colours to the sky, water and land on this journey over the hills in the far corner of the North Antrim Coast. The cliffs of Fair Head and Rathlin Island constantly changed their mood from light to dark. The wet ground sucked up more large raindrops whilst the strong breeze tried to turn the tide.

The Scottish Islands and mainland came in and out of focus as grey curtains of trailing water tried to bridge the gap between sea and sky. A group of walkers came and went as quickly as the patches of blue sky, being lost in the grand scale of what was. The easy going underfoot allowing time to drink it all in.

An old RAF listening post provided shelter as the hail rattled off tin roofs and sheep looked at me bemused in their thick coats. Torr Head looked fine in sunshine far below as the squall brushed across the cold waters. Carnanmore was still a good distance away as the reach of blue won in the sky.

Beautiful colours abounded from golden grass swaying fiercely in the wind like exotic dancers to dark clouds trying to assert their dominance in the deep blue sky. Fenclines bucked back and forth in the wind as the summit cairn approached. A trig pillar provided a steadying hand rest to take in the views. The chambered grave below is a marvel and would have provided excellent protection from the hail shower had it not been facing square on!

A drop to quiet country roads before a stiff climb back to the rolling hills and Murlough Bay as dusk came. A beautiful part of Ireland to go walking along the hill/cliff tops and Carnanmore was a little bit of added spice. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1077/comment/17606/
