Poor Skerry Hill - the forgotten hill of Antrim, forever upstaged by its 'bigger brothers' Trostan and Slievenanee. Not suprised it has been uncommented until now. However it is a splendid hill in its own right and reaches an impressive 459m - considerably higher than the more well-known Slemish or Carncormick. Skerry Hill is very accessible as two roads lead over its northern and eastern flanks. I parked at a little lay-by on the Old Cushendun Road about 2 miles north of Newtowncrommelin (146212 A). It's less than 100 vertical metres from here to the summit. The climb is quite easy - not too steep but the usual terrain for this part of the world - very boggy and tussocky, peat hags etc. Soon you reach the summit which is marked by a small cairn. Majestic views on a day like this especially westwards over neighbouring Slievenahanaghan with its many wind turbines. The forested Slieveanorra stands proudly to the north with the twin domes of Slievenanee and Trostan dominating the view to the north-east. A very interesting view to the south-east with many Antrim hills visible - Carncormick, Slemish, Agnew's Hill, Carnearny and Divis to name but a few. To the south, Lough Neagh was glistening in the sunshine. The walk could be extended to Slievenahanaghan if desired. I however descended by the same route. Total trip - an easy 40 minutes.
