I drove up the Old Cushendun road out of Newtown-Crommelin to where it takes a sharp left turn on to the Altnahinch Road where I parked at a small lay-by D 14285 21327 B on the left side of the road. From here I walked W along the road for 200m to a fence, marked on the Glens of Antrim 1:25,000 scale Activity Map, which initially runs E before turning SW . Once at the fence I kept it to my left and followed it right to the top of the hill which is marked by a small, moss covered, cairn of stones, GPS reading D 13653 20604 C. The going was heavy and I had to make my way into or around a number of wet peaty bog holes on the way up.On arrival at the top I had no visibility due to dense mist when suddenly to my great delight it cleared to give me a full panorama of the views already well described in the comments of Slemish. Clearly the way up can simply be reversed by anyone simply wanting to go up and down this hill by the shortest route. However as I also wanted to include Slievenahanaghan in my round I headed NW down the hillside in the direction of a drainage ditch marked on the map and clearly visable on the ground. Progress was slow as I battled through dense clumps of knee high gorse and tussocky grass. The surprise I found at the bottom was a new access road not marked on the map which considerably eased my walk of some 800 metyres out to the road, after I climbed Slievenahanagan.
