The most difficult thing about Bartonny Top is finding the start of the walk. If you do it as a one-off, this may be the best option: At Derrynacreeve T-junction (between Ballyconnell and Swanlinbar) take the turn signposted 'Ballinamore/Glangevlin/Sligo'. Drive for a few miles, then turn right at the signpost for Corlough. Drive through the hamlet and take a left at the T-junction. Take a right at a school and when you get to another T-junction, take a left. After a few minutes you'll see a gate on your right with an obvious track ascending to forestry (see pic). There's plenty of space to park here.
The forestry road ascends for a kilometre or two (ignore a road branching right), passing a disused slate quarry and emerges through a gate onto open hillside. Passing turf cuttings, negotiate a fence, and ascend a grassy hill up to moorland plateau. There's a quad track that will bring you almost to the heathery knolls at the 'summit'. It's a bleak spot but there's wide views, NE to the escarped Benbrack and further to the Iron Mountains and Slievenakilla. Tiny Bartonny Lough stands out in an area of muted colour.
Descending by the same route, the walk should take about an hour and a half. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/776/comment/3219/
