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.

Did Slieve Commedagh as part of a Slieve Corragh-Commedagh-Slieve Beg threesome in a wind that would cut you in half. Parked at the very secure Meelmore Lodge car park at J 305 307 A (which has loos and very welcome hot water in the taps when I returned some hours later with frozen fingers). A track leads SSE for a few hundred metres before you have to veer east to join the Trassey Track. From then SE to Hares Gap and up to col between Slievenaglogh and Corragh and on to Commedagh. The exposed top was covered in a glassy sheet of ice-crystals. If you plan to do S. Beg from here return to col between Commedagh and Corragh and then rejoin Trassey Track from which S. Beg is about a 15 min climb. Do not attempt to go the more direct route to the SW down the steep-sided Commedagh as you will walk off a high cliff!
