A short and quick alternative .. by Harry Goodman   (Show all for Belmore Mountain)

Whilst Tullybrack lends its self to the noctivagant & ochlophobic, Belmore, its big sister, has been logged by 2 other walkers and with its larger area of boggy summit, with some bluffs, is best left to daylight wanderings.

There is just enough space at 103426 F, to park a car (Boho to Mullylusty minor road) and still allow access through the gate to forestry vehicles (also sign posted as a walking route). The OSNI map sheet 17, marks the forestry tracks accurately so there is no need for a detailed description, other than make your way to where the track ends at 131417 G. From here follow a faint track through the trees, over a ditch and fence onto the open hillside. Cross the bog, with some deep heather in places, to the summit, there is a small radio mast not shown on the map a short distance from the trig point.
