Unorthodox Ramblings
by Aidy  15 Apr 2014
Walked almost every inch of this magnificent mountain today, albeit in a very unorthodox fashion. Initially I took the lazy way and parked beside the lough near the summit, then walked to the northeast edge of the cliffs. Walked in a generally southwest direction then, taking in the amazing views over Benone, Magilligan, Lough Foyle, Inishowen, the Roe Valley, and finally towards the Sperrins. All the while, I continually went as close as I dared to the edge of the cliff to see as much of them as I could from above. Having gone well to the south, I encountered a fence that took me east to the summit itself and the trig pillar. I then retraced my steps back to the car park, and drove round to a another car park in a forest just off the Aghanloo Road, not far south of its junction with the Seacoast Road. A long walk along the forest trail eventually took me out at the base of the cliffs on the west of the mountain. i walked south along the cliffs, ascending all the time, until I think I wasn't far off the point where earlier in the day I turned east from the cliffs to reach the summit, although I didn't go all the way up. Instead of going back north to regain the forest track, I thought I would cut directly west through the forest to the car park, which was a mistake. There was no trail at this end, and I took a zig-zagging route through dense trees, up and down steep forested slopes, tired and disorientated. Eventually, I did emerge close to where I wanted to be, although I'm not sure it saved me any time. Met a herd of goats at the southern edge of the cliffs too, but not sure if they were wild.

This mountain proves that height isn't everything, as the views are truly amazing from the top, particularly being blessed with a day like today. It is also equally attractive from below, the cliffs being very impressive from the west at the base. In fact, unusually, I ran out of space on my camera memory cards. Highly recommended whatever way you chose to approach it. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/860/comment/16009/
