Cnoc Fada was the first stop on a cracking round from Dunlewy, also taking in Drumnaliffernn, Bingorms, Slieve Snaght and Crockfadda NE Top. Parking was at the side of the road just past the start of the track into the Poisoned Glen.

The track into the Glen is well worn and passes over a lovely arched stone bridge. At this point Errigal is still ahead with the X Factor but this changes as travel further into the ampitheatre. The ground does get pretty wet, but relativity is all - as i think of the walk into Lough Belshade in the Bluestacks! The grass is lush and green and the walls of rock tower skyward all around. I passed the gully access point to the right and veered left to follow the river dropping down from little Lough Beg. There was a bit of boulder hopping and walking along a surprisingly dry riverbed.

On reaching a deerfence i followed this steeply uphill to the right, along the flanks of Cnoc Fada. As i stopped to catch my breath the wind exhaled and whistled through the strands of wire beside me. A couple of merlins flew past furiously and noisily. Mackoght now deems to make an appearance alongside the presence of Errigal above the high ground of Maumlack. The whole of the Poison Glen was also laid out before me, back to the ruined church at Dunlewy (wow).

The toil uphill is steep and today was slippery. At the crest leave the fenceline and head to the right to reach the 485m of Cnoc Fada after a couple of hours walking. Big big views to the surrounding Derryveaghs - Dooish joining from the NW, Moylenanav to the S and Drumnaliffernn, Bingorms and S Snaght. The ground here is wonderfully rocky and gives a great sense of being in the wilds.

Options to extend the walk from here are numerous dependent upon time, energy, interest and experience. I took another 5 hours in the cold, mist and wet underfoot, getting back near dark and kipping in the car - and it was great! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/497/comment/4543/
