As on Slieve Meelmore, there is a tower near the summit of Slieve Commedagh. On the southern side, at the head of the Annalong Valley, is a spectacular group of granite tors known as 'the Castles'. These can be appreciated from the Brandy Pad, a track once used by smugglers. During the 18th Century the Mourne Mountains were notorious for smuggling commodities such as wine, silk, tobacco, tea and brandy, mainly from Britain. The cargo would be brought ashore under the cover of darkness and taken over the mountains to Hilltown and the surrounding areas.   Slieve Commedagh is the second highest mountain in the Mourne Mountains area and the 64th highest in Ireland. Slieve Commedagh is the second highest point in county Down.

Bleck Cra on Slieve Commedagh, 2006
by Bleck Cra  16 Jul 2006
There are days when nature conspires to make the mountains so beautiful, she breaks your heart. Sunday 28th November 2004 in the Mourne Mountains, was one such day. A wistful, wandering way through a world of up-ended conifers at the hem of Commedagh’s petticoats; snap-dry branches amongst glistening holly and feather-down moss; draw clean blood on barbed wire and emerge on golden pastures to the Pots of Pulgarve: God’s amphitheatre on the Glen River, Dundrum Bay and beyond, where none but the ravens take their seats; so often black misted, but today every lethal rock pinsharp - all pointing down. To an ice-cold wall and drop along the ridge to Hare’s Gap - a canary-coloured winter sun like a match-head: suddenly blazing, suddenly cold as ash, shooting black shadow shafts into silken crags - and at all times the scent of snow in her wake. Meelmore and Meelbeg, from the North and East, grey-cold like wet newsprint and presenting fantastical scenes of ancient Dalriada, as fat satin ravens perform a last night before winter’s cold curtain comes down. Off Bearnagh and East - the root of a rainbow hangs like a huge kite between the lodge and Castewellan, breathing her fairy breath into the glen and suddenly the night looms, casting a palate of blues and lilacs over Binnian-to-Beg; the pace quickens to the saddle and blues melt to pinks and greens and a canter off Donard to the forest road. Night has fallen, the wood whispers; a wide sweep East and below, a carpet of fairy lights from Hilltown to Dundrum, from the Shimna River to Downpatrick. A warm car like a butterfly cucoon, on the Castlewellan Road, South the matt black silhouette of these stunning hills against an ink sky, North a full moon dozing between linen sheets.
