Carnmoney Hill is possibly the shyest of the generally bold tops around Belfast, and this is probably the quickest way of attaining the summit.

An unpromising road rises from Ballyduff (a suburb of Newtownabbey), its walls liberally adorned with graffiti. There are two gates on it; on a previous occasion both were open but on this visit the second was padlocked so a longer walk was necessary. (There was a mirror hanging in hallucinogenic resplendence on this second gate though, so any image-conscious cows can fix their lippy and mascara before a night out in Glengormley). Head on up the road towards the transmitter, then at an obvious left hand bend cut right across a fence towards the conspicuous summit cone. This is rough and vegetated and a bit prickly, but tracks can be found around to the right. The views up the Antrim coast and down past Cave Hill to Belfast are outstanding.

Return the same way, and hopefully you'll be as lucky as we were and your car will still be there too.
