Talking Ballix! One of the Sperrins outliers accessed from a track opposite junction of Glencoppagh Road IH482 956 B. Alternatively there is another track a little further up the hill just beyond the trees which will also bring you on to the hill's SE slope. An unremarkable hill which will only take 35 minutes up and down again. Might not seem worth it except that in this case you get maximum scenery for minimal effort. Views across to the high Sperrins, over to Benbradagh E & NE are great together with expansive views southwards with Cuilcagh on the Cavan/Fermanagh border also clearly visible. but there are even more spectacular views NNW towards the Derryveagh Mts in Donegal. On the day it looked like you could throw a stone and hit Muckish and Errigal! Apologies for the pictures - walk was opportunistic so I had to use the phone camera.
