This hill has a personal connection in that my great grandfather Bell owned 400 acres here before selling to the forestry service in the 1950's (for £1 per acre). The remains of the old homestead are still visible, surrounded by mature broadleaf trees amid the pine, and the family return periodically to reconnect.

Parking was at the entrance opp the quarry (737848 A) where loads of room. Follow the good track into the forest until a carpark - turn left uphill on tarred road. Views in the forest stretch to the big Sperrin hills to the N and from here brought the hills of Antrim within reach. Continue uphill at a crossroads past a new gate. The wind bringing the trees alive with creaks and groans of protest.

Take a track forking to the left, where the trees soon thin to show the top of Ougthmore a short distance away. Cross the fence where machinery has been accessing the hill - some turf cutting. Pools of water here were thick with clumps of frog spawn. Fairly straight forward jaunt to top reached in 45 minutes from start. There is a small summit cairn which is certainly dwarfed by the far reaching views. North the line of the high Sperrins, West to the Bluestacks, South to Mullaghcarn, Cuilcaigh, Cooleys, Mournes and East to Belfast and Antrim Hills.

Skiffs of rain peppered the ground for seconds and were gone as i returned to the forest track - returning the way i had come. Detoured to the little loughs at 736857 B in hope of catching sight of some siska deer but wasn't to be today. Busy through parts of the forest with plenty of walkers and some mountain bikers but easy to lose yourself here. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/862/comment/4586/
