Completed as part of a 'Benbradagh Ridge' walk starting just off the main Belfast- Derry road, at bottom of Glenshane Pass IC 77356 05606 A. Just below the Layby (Derry side of pass there is a minor road which loops around and back onto the main road. At the bend there is a track through gate. Follow it up past derelict building and over fence, negotiating difficult terrain to reach Craigmore (395m) IC 77219 06915 B after 1.3K. From here the terrain worsens, and maintains its difficulty level for most of the ridge - heavy heather, gorse, tussock grass and extremely wet conditions (on the day) for another 2.4K necessitating crossing over numerous fences to reach the non-descript summit of Carn Hill. The top can be found just beyond a fence and appears to be marked by a couple of small rocks and a large slab close by. Nothing else of note around. The summit can be reached more easily from the main road rather than traipsing over Craigmore. Neither route is worth the effort it in my estimation, although on a better day one might expect to get a reasonable view across to the main Sperrin range. Sorry no picture, those taken on this walk were almost entirely blotched with rain and not worth sharing. Weather withstanding (which was absolutely terrible -incessant rain and heavy mist) this walk, and particularly this section, is one for the purists!
