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.

Steep and slippy but great views!

I started off from the car park on the Trassey road at J3107 3143 B and headed through the forest along the Trassey track which then opens up and follows the Trassey river with amazing views of Bearnaghs torrs and the western slopes of Meelmore. When the trassey track heads off to the SW at the head of the valley (J3181 2913 C) I headed SE towards the saddle between Bearnagh and Slievenaglogh known as Hares Gap. This trudge up towards the Mourne wall at Hares Gap can get very wet and today was definitely one of those days, I may as well have been walking up a waterfall. When I reached the wall I headed NE following the wall to the summit of Slievenaglogh and was fortunate enough to get views of a peregrine falcon and was finally greeted by the ravens that so often follow us through the Mournes. I followed the wall over the top of Slieve Corragh before finally making the ascent to Commedagh. This was very steep at points and incredibly slippy due to the wet ground but the view to the SW to the rest of the range was incredible with Ben Crom reservoir breaking up the rugged landscape. I the followed the wall SE to the saddle between Donard and Commedagh at J3493 2794 D and then headed back along the brandy pad path along the western slope of Commedagh below the incredible stone sculptures known as the castles which lead me back to Hares Gap and the Trassey. Definitely one of the best treks though the Mournes and the best place to view the whole range. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/18403/
