Drumnalifferny, Optional Extra After Snaght!
by Vikingr2013  7 Oct 2013
Climbed Slieve Snaght and took in Drumnalifferny on Sunday 22nd September 2013. We approached the mountain from the Doochary Road side (R254), parking the car on the bridge at (IG B9343 1290 D), ascending the coomb to the south of Snaght and descending the coomb to the north.

From the car we headed straight into the coomb, keeping the Sruhancrolee river to our left. We then climbed on the right hand side of Scardangal Burn waterfall (marked on OS map) and walked steadily around and up, corkscrewing to the top of Slieve Snaght.

From the top of Snaght we descended to the northern end of SlieveSnaght Loch. We then climbed to the cleft of Drumnalifferny/Bingorms ridge (IG B9333 1525 E) and took in the top of Drumnalifferny because it was such a nice day. We descended to the cleft point again to descend into the coomb to the east of this position. It is useful to remember this point as mists can descend very quickly on these mountains and if you are too far to the south, you can easily find yourself at the top of the Bingorm cliffs, where you do not want to be in a mist!

We descended into the coomb of the Scardandoo stream (marked on OS map) in loose order. This coomb is always very wet, boggy, full of hidden watercourses, holes and slippery rocks and you could very easily twist or break an ankle! So take it easy and slowly, and try to minimise the amount of time you spend on your backside (no exaggeration!). Wet and mucky, but unharmed, we eventually reached the road again beside a bridge (IG B9440 1383 F) and walked a kilometre back to the start-point.

This is definitely a moderate to difficult walk, but on a day like this it was extremely worthwhile and gave us wonderful clear views of 5 counties. We took our time, stopping often to admire the view and took five hours for the whole thing. The advantage of walking in the autumn? Not a midge in sight!
