This approach comes in from the N of the Sperrins, not from the usual Genelly Valley side. I followed a rough lane ,which was signed as a dead end (526982 A), uphill to park next to an abandoned house (528976 B). Climb the gate and continue uphill across a green field to reach a fence - follow until reach a junction and cross onto the hillside. Uphill NE to reach a col and fenceline heading across the tops, over some deep heather in places. This was a cracking day and the ground was tinder dry - heavily cracked peat and bone dry stream beds had me thinking of Spain rather than the wet Sperrins. I followed the fenceline SE with views across the valley to Mullaghclogher and Mullaghcarbatagh, disturbing a grouse on the way. As gain height views open up N & W to Benevenagh cliffs, Slieve Snaght and Ragtin More, Muckish and the Derryveaghs and the Bluestacks. As i stopped for a short rest bees buzzed around me and birds twittered, accompanying the gentle push of the wind and the heat of the sun.

There are a steady series of rises, following the fence to the summit area, where it bears right (558963 C) giving great views over to Sawel and Dart and the lesser tops vying for position behind (1.5 hrs). There is a short stroll up to a small cairn and then a meeting of several fencelines, giving a view along the entire lenght of the Glenelly Valley. Follow fence downhill to SW easily for 10 mins to the broad col, usually wet but fine today. The long broad shoulder of Mullaghasturrakeen reachs up from the Glenelly Valley below to the rounded top, which is an easy climb following the fence. Contiune W towards the next top of Mullaghclogher, tyre tracks from a farmers quad bike attest to the ease of access to these hills by the numerous tracks from the S. Pass a normally wet area and then drop further to col with Mullaghclogher - there is an area of rock just to the right here which is an excellent spot for a rest and some shelter. There is a straight as a dye ascent from the col, which is steep at times. Meet another fence and follow it uphill to the L to reach the non descript summit of joined fences. There are unhindered views on most compass points before drop and rise yet again to the gem of a summit that is Mullaghcarbatagh. This is the end of the long line of hills through the Glenelly Valley and it does feel like a proper end, though there are some smaller hills further to the W. There was a bird of prey hovering over the forest on the slopes below as i dropped down along the rocky ridge NW. Pick up a fence and follow it downhill into the Glengarrow, walking through peat hags down to a track beside Burn Dennet river. There is a beautiful waterfall an pool here (528970 D). Follow the track uphill and then find an easy crossing point of another stream and join the track which leads back down to where the car is parked. This walk took 5.5 hours and I had the hills to myself and the amazing views that came with them. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/223/comment/950/
