A Wild Landscape

Recently I've been trying to get to all the summits in the central Bluestacks, which are usually difficult to reach, being far from roads, and behind other mountains. On Sunday, I targeted Croaghbarnes, Meenanea and Cronamuck. I started from an unnamed road, north of Lough Eske, overlooking the Corabber River. A few yards after leaving the car I arrived at a gate with Private Property, No Tresspassing, and for good measure, Beware of the Bull signs, so there are definitely access issues here. I confess, I pushed on regardless, taking the gravel track uphill, still overlooking the river, until it petered out on higher ground to the north. Luckily, I wasn't spotted, or the landowner wasn't bothered. As I suspected, there was also no trace of a bull in this terrain. Once off the track, I entered a confusing area of micro hills and valleys, with high, steep slopes to my left, but I was able to follow the river to Lough Belshade. It was a dramatic sight, backed by the steep cliffs of the main Bluestack ridge, still dusted with snow. This is a really wild, beautiful area. I went up the steep, rocky southwest side of Croaghbarnes, emerging on to the lough covered summit area, and continuing from there to the top. Views from there were breathtaking for 360 degrees, and the hard walking was well rewarded. A magnificent walk which I continued on to Meenanea and Cronamuck.
