Lough Shannagh Circuit
by hbowman1  13 Mar 2011
I climbed this mountain for the second time yesterday as part of an A to B walk. Started off from Deer's Meadow and followed the Mourne wall up to Slieve Muck. This took approx 45 minutes and I would imagine this is probably the quickest way to climb to the summit of Slieve Muck. We then climbed over the second stile and followed the wall to the summit of Carn. At Carn we headed over pathless terrain toward Lough Shannagh. There is a very small sandy patch beside the Lough, an ideal place to stop. After lunch we followed a path beside Lough Shannagh. The path is very narrow but does offer nice views over the Lough and beyond. Upon reaching the top of the Lough we joined another path which leads round to the saddle between Slieve Meelbeg and Slieve Loughshannagh. Turning left at the Mourne wall, we headed toward the summit of Slieve Loughshannagh. Sadly the mist was so thick, there were no views. However, on a clear day, the views from this point are fantastic and I would strongly recommend this mountain to anyone walking in the Mournes for the first time. Upon descent we headed toward a stile between Carn and Slieve Loughshannagh. We then followed the path beside Ott mountain back to Ott car park. The full walk took approx 5 hours.
