As we wanted to walk the hills on both sides of Barnes Gap (19 March 2010) we parked at H5517389565 A. From here there is a figure of eight route which allows the walker to climb Craigamaddy on the first loop and then come back to the car for a break (lunch/snack). Initially we headed SSW down the road (signed for the Ulster Way) to the start of a good stony track ( H5500089100 B) which contoured around the side of Mullaghbane and which we followed to a stile on the right some 2.6km from the start of the walk. There were views S from this lofty track across the valley to Mullaghcarn and SW to Bessy Belle. Once over the stile we followed a winding rough, muddy, stony track up the hillside to its end and then a short distance out to a fence at Pt 366 (H5350088500 C). From here we turned left and followed the broad ridge down and then up to Craignamaddy and its flat top extending for some 700 metres W. Fortunately for us the undistinguished high point of the hill is at the E end a few metres south of the fence avoiding the necessity to trudge out over a further 700 metres of clumpy heather in search of the unmarked summit (H5220089500 D). Indeed the top is so flat that one could aimlessly walk around looking for the highest tuft of heather/grass. From here, some 4.9k into the walk, we headed back E along the fence to Pt 366 and then, instead of returning by our outward route opted to continue E along the fence over the lower top of Mullaghbane and then unerringly along the fence to our start point at Barnes Gap. All of the time to the N across the Glenelly Valley were fine views of the High Sperrins Ridge from Mullacarbatagh to Sawel and beyond. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/861/comment/4536/
