Overlooks the Spelga Dam and the Deer's Meadow, the source of the River Bann. It is surprising to think that this river rises less than 10 miles from the coast near Newcastle, and yet it empties into the sea near Coleraine.   Slieve Muck is the 160th highest summit in Ireland.

I headed up Slieve Muck from the summit of Carn. It was simply a case of following the Mourne Wall, which was just as well due to dense cloud. I made the mistake of following the wall on the southern side from the summit of Carn, because when it went down into the col it soon came to a dead end at a wall of rock at J 284 260 C. Clambering over the wall I was then able to skirt the rocky bluff and continued to follow the wall on its western side as it turned and headed up to the summit. It is less than a 100 metre climb over nearly 1km, but it was tiring after a long days walking. Sadly the cloud prevented any view from the summit, but I was impressed with the two stiles crossing the junction of the walls at the summit. Slieve Muck was to be the final summit of the day and so I descended NW across its steep slopes to meet the road at point J274 261 D. The going was slippy and boggy and required care. The clouds eventually gave way to views of Spelga dam and Butter Mountain. I was relieved to reach the road and a 2km calorie-burning march brought me back to the car at the Blue Quarry/Ott car park. The end of a long 7 hour hike, or was it? After Ott, Slieve Loughshannagh, Ben Crom, Doan, Carn and Muck I was tired, hot and footsore. Yet Butter Mountain beckoned, and I remembered an MV post suggesting it would only take 10 minutes…so I yielded to the temptation of this quick peak-bag.
