Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  31 Mar 2015
From the village of Dunloy go S off the B16 and at a staggered cross-roads D016185 A turn right up Mallaboy Lane, initially on a poor surface but soon on a concrete lane leading up to a number of houses. At this point seek to park without blocking the lane and, if possible with permission D0090818117 B. Continue along on foot and, on a now rough track, pass through a gate out on to a flat barren heathland with some farm buildings on the right.. The MV listed high point lies lies about 300 metres NW from this point, within a small ring cotour at 210 metres but is unmarked on the ground nor by a spot height on the OS sheet. In all there are at least six 210 metre ring contours widely dispersed along 2 km of the long top of the hill, none of which has a spot height marked on the map. This "mountain" is certainly long and wide but has a barely perceptible rise which makes it hard to distinguish from the land around it. There are views E to the line of higher Antrim Hills.

The given name of the upland sprawl to the SW of Dunloy is only vaguely optimistic; it is indeed fairly long given its modest vertical stature. Quite broad too, to give it due credit. The 'mountain' bit is slightly pushing it, mind.

My ascent came at the end of a 'stolen Sunday afternoon out and about'; indeed, the shadows were almost as long as the hill by the time I found the road junction at (016185) and turned the car up Mallaboy Lane. This is an initially unpromising thoroughfare, being barely surfaced and potholed to an adolescent's face kind of degree. But soon you're covering light coloured concrete, as relatively new houses built hereabouts have evidently warranted improvements in the road. I left the car at (009182 C); the surface soon deteriorates, and while you could drive further polite 'No Parking' notices make it feel unwise. Continue up the track through a gate onto the squat brow of the hill; I was startled by some wild horses as the gloaming began to gloam even more extensively in this vicinity. Once you can see the houses on the far side of the ridge (or the base of the gathering of wind turbines ahead) turn right/north onto the trackless heathland of the top. I walked about 300m in this direction, squinting into the murk and taking in a good five or six potential highest points. I'm pretty happy that at least one of them was the right one...just don't ask me which.

The views are extensive but with a lot of foreground...see pic. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1272/comment/15886/
