Marked as Carn Hill on the OSNI Discoverer map, but better known as Slievetrue. Locally this is pronounced Slieveytrue with 3 syllables. The mountain derives its Irish name from 3 standing stones known as The Three Brothers, located about half a mile SW of the summit. These are now somewhat disguised as they have been integrated into a field wall.   Slievetrue is the second highest hill in the Belfast Hills area and the 1022th highest in Ireland. Slievetrue is the second most northerly summit in the Belfast Hills area.

Changes?
by Peter Walker  16 Feb 2012
The wise man isn't late home on Valentine's Day, and so it was that I went for the same route up and down Slievetrue as used by Harry Goodman and gerrym, but without any additional exploration. Nobody was in evidence on the way past the house on the way up so I pressed on to the top, and was greeted by a northerly Antrim vista smothered by a dampened blanket of grey cloud, and to the south Cave Hill was fighting a losing battle to prevent Belfast from being similarly inundated.

With all that said I must alert other Mountainviewers to a possible change to access to Slievetrue. On my descent I met a group of people just above the house and I thought it sensible and proper to tell them where I’d been and to check that access was still in place. I was politely-but-firmly told that access to the top required the permission of the Police Authority and that without it I would have to return to the road. Worth bearing in mind if you’re contemplating an ascent. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/945/comment/6689/
