A substantial tower has been built on the summit. The spot height is given as 704m on the 1:25,000 map, but this does not square with the contours, which only go up to 680m. Spellack (speilic, ' a splintery rock') is a spur on Slieve Meelmore.   Slieve Meelmore is the 141st highest place in Ireland.

A strange beast
by paulocon  14 May 2010
From some angles, it really is a strange beast.. kind of like a beached whale or the back of an elephant. Whatever it is, it had loads of people scurrying up, down and around it! For summit baggers, there are huge gains to be made with Carn, Loughshannagh, Meelbeg, Meelmore and Bearnagh so close to each other and the walking (with the exception of that climb up Bearnagh) pretty easy going.

As for that climb up Bearnagh! From Meelmore it looks impossibly steep, ridiculous even! Even glancing across at it was causing my legs to cramp so I decided to cross the wall and take a dander up to the summit proper of Meelmore to take my mind off the task ahead. That summit lies a hundred metres or so away from the watch-tower (what exactly was 'watched' from these towers?) and is marked with a cairn. My 'quiet time' at the top was interrupted by that rarest of creatures, a fell runner, and before I had time to raise my hand to salute him, he was off round the corner and was descending towards Bearnagh in what I can only describe as an uncontrolled and impossibly fast stumble.

I decided to stick to what I know best and slowly picked my way down across the rocks to the gap between Meelmore and Bearnagh before heading off up the ridiculous gradient.. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/138/comment/4731/
