Access Problems?
by redape99  2 Aug 2011
Went walking here on 31/7/11 but encountered a very angry local farmer on the way down from Stoukeen. First of all found that the track to Gortavehy Lake has a sign saying "No unauthorised access" so looked at the map and the track starting at 236 879 A up to Curracahill and Stoukeen looked promising so chose that way. After an hour and a half came across another sign on a gate right under the cairn on Stoukeen displaying "PRIVATE PROPERTY, NO TRESPASSING, NO HILLWALKING". There's no way of seeing this sign until you're on top of it, without binoculars anyway even if it wasn't misty! This sign is also on both sides of the gate so it's unclear whether the Curracahill side is private or the summits or both. At first the farmer refused to let us back down to the car insisting we go back up the hill in the direction he'd seen us coming from. After saying I'd add a note to MV about the signs he eventually let us carry on. Met another local farmer at the car (this time much more ameniable) who told us a few sad tales of the big increase in the thefts in the area recently.
