From Carncormick (see previous posts for Carncormick) we followed the fence north east through the usual soft, wet & heathery Co. Antrim terrain, crossing the fence just before the Red Sea. Then another fence (wire low or missing in a lot of sections), before climbing up hill passed a small deep flush with the chewed carcass of a sheep lying in it. Perhaps that black panther, the police failed to shoot on the north coast, is alive and well and roaming the Antrim hills. If it was, it would certainly spice up those late winter finishes!

From pt 438 there is a small dip then the final slope to Mid Hill, and as is usual in these parts, there are three small rises within the 440 contour line. Take your pick or do them all, the far rise has some rocks sticking out of the peat, so ideal for a lunch stop.

But what can you say about a hill whose views take in the land from Slemish to Trostan and the Sperrins to Arran, one to ponder while munching lunch on those rocks. See Collin Top for the continuation of this walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/652/comment/3431/
