Better Than I Thought
by Aidy  7 Feb 2014
When this hill was recently included in the listings, I marked it as climbed, but did not comment as it was a long time ago and my memory was vague. I did however comment in the general forum and wrote rather disparagingly about it, promising to climb it again to confirm if my memories were correct. This time, memory is not an issue as I am writing this only half an hour after coming down, this being the closest hill to my home, and I'm glad I returned as it appears I may have been a bit harsh. On reflection, I may not have been on the actual summit on my last visit, and I had better weather today too.

I reached the hill via the Lurganboy Road from Castlederg, continuing for a few miles until I passed over the highest point on the road, through a small coniferous plantation, and just after starting to descend again into the Finn Valley, I took a narrow minor road on the right. A hundred metres or so along this brought me to the first of a series of masts on the hill, where there was space to park one car at the side of the road. The summit is to the right of the road, and is not marked. My best guess is that it is close to a second mast further along, in the middle of a field, but perhaps someone with a GPS device may be able to give more precise guidance. I had a good wander around the whole area however, and I am confident I would have stood on the summit at some point.

There was practically no walking involved in reaching the top, and no challenge, but where I may have been harsh in the general forum was in describing the views. They are actually very good in all directions. The Bluestacks in particular looked impressive from here, and I could also clearly see Errigal, Muckish, and other peaks in that region. Closer by, there were nice views over Croaghan Hill.

If its a good walk and a challenge you're after, this would be better done as one stop along with other summits in the area, such as Croaghan Hill, but if you're nearby, the views are definitely worth a look. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1247/comment/15833/
