gerrym on Mamore Hill, 2008

I had missed Mamore Hill on my last visit along the length of these hills and was determined to put this wrong to right. I came from Butlers Glen to the N, taking in Raghtin Beg & More and Crockmain, before dropping down steeply to bask at the foot of this hill. Mamore is an exciting looking prospect on the descent from Crockmain and i suppose it did not disappoint.
There is a linking area of higher ground between the two hills and this should be followed to the base of a steep climb alongside areas of scree. There has been traffic on this straight upwards section and some accompanying erosion. On reaching the top there is a more gentle winding track thorugh the heather to the top proper and a small cairn. The views from here are beautiful - looking back it is hard to distinguish where Crockmain ends and Raghtin More begins as the ground rises steeply from sea level to over 500m. The little beach at Lehan Bay had specks of people on its colourful strand far below and there was plenty of other high and low sights to capture the minds eye. There is another small cairn ahead and a great descent above the road climbing through Mamore Gap. This is on an ever narrowing line which has bare rock jutting up before dropping to the road at the Gap itself.
Choices, choices - continue on or not. Unfortunately it was not, partly to avoid a long road walk back to the car at Bulters Glen. Walking down the road on the E side brings a farm track on the left which heads up the valley and down to Butlers Glen in a much more acceptable way than the road.
