I can think of two things wrong with that title
by slemish  27 Aug 2010
The obvious one is that at only 423m high it is just a hill not a mountain. Rather more importantly however I feel there may be an error in the first part of the name given by MV to this summit. As far as I can gather from the OS map and the names of two local roads, the correct title for this summit is Coolnasillagh Mountain (with only one 'i'). Perhaps Simon could look into this? Whatever the correct name is, this is a great little hill - easy to climb and commanding a wonderful vista from its north-eastern face. I parked at a layby on the Coolnasillagh Road, a minor track just off the very busy A6 Glenshane Pass (786012 A). It's a simple trek from here up to the summit, either following the stony track round or as I did straight up the grassy slope. The summit itself is difficult to pinpoint. There was a metal post sticking up out of one of the peat hags which could be the summit although another peat hag nearby looked slightly higher. The view from the summit to the north and east is fabulous - an enormous swathe of Northern Ireland opens up beneath you from Knocklayd in Antrim all the way round to Slieve Gullion in Armagh. Mullaghmore unfortunately blocks the view to the higher Sperrins and Donegal. I was surprised to see a farmer with tractor on the summit collecting the dried turf - one of the rare times I've ever met anyone else on top of a hill. There was also an alarming number of wooden pallets laying about the summit area - presumably these are used for carrying the turf back down. I returned to the car by way of ascent. As three5four0 says, this hill should be climbed if ever in the area as it is easy and well worth it for the views on a good day. I was up and down in half an hour.

There is enough space to park by the track / road junction at 786012. From here follow the bog track to another junction at 776011 B, turning left here, pass another track junction (keeping right). Follow this track up hill, turning right at the next junction continuing to the summit area. Pick your peat hag before the turf cutting lowers this mountains height further! Good views from the top and with a quick ascent means this hill can be fitted in when your passing through the Glenshane Pass Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/729/comment/4034/

Last one of the day.

This was my third top to tick off the list today and I made this rather easy summit my final one for the route. I found a small pile of rocks at the edge of a track that seems to be the highest point and bang on the summit location according to my GPS. However, with the extensive peat extraction works in evidence all over this hill they may not last much longer and may not be the highest point for long either. Great views though and a nice way to finish my day. This summit was part of a 20km walk that I have uploaded as a route. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/729/comment/15948/
