This is the first mountain I’ve climbed where I’ve met an unwelcoming landowner. I had decided to attempt to climb the mountain from near R652737 E around the area on sheet 58 called Aillemore. The road was really bad with nowhere to park so I was driving away from the mountain when I came upon a tractor traveling towards me. I hailed the driver and asked him could he suggest anywhere to park around the area and if he knew was it ok to climb the mountain. I was promptly told that ‘no one was climbing that mountain today’, before going on to say he was sick of scramblers driving through his fences, and that he and two other farmers had decided to call a halt to walkers on their land. He said he owned all this side of Moylussa and he was glad that he had met me at the bottom as he recently had chased 8 walkers up ‘his’ mountain and told them to leave. He wasn’t in the least aggressive but he did seem at the end of his tether so I decided not to push the matter. I asked him if he owned the summit area too and was there any way up the mountain. He had lightened up considerably by now and said there was a way up by Glenvagalliagh mountain or I could park at the marina just north of Killaloe and go up by the forest path, and then he went off again talking about his grievances and saying that only a fool would climb a mountain on a day like this (it was a bit cloudy). To be fair he gave me directions on how to get to Killaloe. Anyway I did the mountain the next day and thanks to walter hollicks for his directions which I found a useful in getting up this rather unpleasant mountain. I have a couple of additions to his directions which may be of use. Just before the marina at R688760 F you will see the entrance to Ballycuggaran forest park. You can actually drive up this a short distance where you will find an ample car park, nicely away from the main road and prying eyes! You follow the East Clare Way from here. Walter Hollick also mentions the path to the summit after the firebreak. It is important to emphasise the true awfulness of this though. It literally is knee deep in mud in places and it would be a good idea to bring a pair of wellies with you. Other than that take it very slowly and bring a stick with you to catch your inevitable slip-ups! I thought you actually have to take this path as the mature forest on your right is impassable and the new plantation on your left is barb wired off. However on the way down I went through the plantation as the barb wire is only intermittent. After you pass through the double gates you will have to cross the barb wire fence to get to the summit. Watch out for the small boulder set in the ground under the fence near the summit which you can use as a stile. Overall, I enjoyed the first part of the walk which goes through a forest park, which is so typical of south east Clare. The second part of the walk was terrible, what with the boggy path and the dump of a summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/2094/
