Slieve Gallion
In reply to Michael McA, a walk from Iniscarn to Crockandun Loughs is certainly feasable. There are parking opportunities at both locations - more limited at Iniscarn if gates are locked. The walk through the forest to the transmittters is fairly straight forward, following the track on the OS map and then the fence uphill. From here follow tarmac road and then off to the right along old bog tracks to the trig pillar and then down along Mobuy Wood to the road skirting the loughs. It could be navagtionally difficult in poor weather and perhaps not a great experience as the views are fantastic and make the walk. The ground from the trig pillar is quite wet and not too pleasant. There are not many people about to complain over access, the route is mostly mountain but would have to cross a few fields near the loughs. It would be possible to return to Iniscairn along the high and quiet road through "the gap" although would add an hour or two to the walk. If doing as an A to B should only take a few hours.

Not much to add to the comments here except that there appears to be some maintenance work being carried out on the access road so there is a mound of gravel at the access gate so parking is a bit...

Clomantagh Hill: The Kilkenny Burren.
TommyV an hour ago.
Eamonoc's directions are spot on on but there is an obvious track made by a tractor so following this will also take you close to the summit. It's a lovely little walk but very obviously on farmla...

Thanks so much to sandman for the parking spot - it was ideal but the road in here is not for everyone and it might be best now to park at G9808064843 and walk the road in to your starting point a...

When you're surrounded by murk and mediocrity it doesn't take much to stand out.Meikle Bin is such a hill sitting in the more or less flat upland bog that make up most of the Campsie Hills.

A potentially brilliant mountain for walking destroyed by quadbikers; the summit cairn is surrounded by a sea of mud thanks to our considerate friends on 4 wheels. The col between Slievemaan and L...
