Eagle Mt via Attical
Revilli. This is a route frequently used by the Wee Binnian walkers from Newry. Local land owners do tend to be quite protective but it mostly relates to the land up to and surrounding the Red Bog on the plateau just below the summit of Finlieve. By all means continue along the Sandy Brae, crossing the ford and up to the gate at the end of the road. Looking along the valley from this gate you will see the choice that lies ahead. A track along the left side of the river takes you all the way to the saddle between Eagle and Moughanmore, or there is the route which I take to the right of the river. Look for the stile on the other side of the stream about 200yds distant and head for that, you will be able to cross the river by a set of stepping stones. Cross the stile and take the step but short run to the top of Slieve Mageogh. There is then a nice ridge walk all the way to the top of Pigeon Rock Mountain. From Pigeon you have the choice of following Batts wall - turn left to take in Moughanmore, Eagle and Shanlieve giving you a wonderful horse shoe walk, or turn right to follow your route to Leitrim Lodge, onto Muck to join the Mourne wall then over Carn, Loughshannagh and the Meels. Whichever you choose is very rewarding - Best of luck.

The NE spur off Lackabane is something of a knife edge, descending steeply and with even steeper sides. Watch it on a poor day.
