Mourne 7 Sevens
Hi Paul, I last did 7/7's in the late 90's. At that time the start and finish was in Donard Park,Newcastle and I assume this is still the case. After that the route was up to each walker to decide. I started up the Glen River to the saddle and the Mourne Wall. Then left up to top of Donard and back down (leave ruc- sack at Saddle). Follow wall on up to Commedagh and then descend SW past the Castles, on the left, to the Brandy Pad. Continue SW past Slieve Beg and then around the NW flank of Cove Mt (or over the summit if you have not been there before) before dropping down to coll and then the ascent SSW to Lamagan. Descend SW to the saddle with Binnian and then ascend S past the North Tor to the ridge and Binnian summit. Retrace route back to saddle with Lamagan and walk out NW to overlook Ben Crom Reservoir. Identify a sometimes hidden track going diagonally down SW to the Dam and once at it cross over. Climb up and over the S shoulder of Ben Crom and then follow the line of the river N and up NW to Meelbeg (a tedious trudge). From Meelbeg follow Mourne Wall NE over Meelmore, then SE to Bernagh and down to Hare's Gap. Follow the Brandy Pad along past the Castles of Commedagh and then go up to the saddle before descending the Glen River track to Donard Park. A variation of my route would be to reverse this route after climbing Commedagh. Some people also descend to the Silent Valley track and then walk up to Crom Reservoir rather than go back along the ridge from Binnian summit. Hope this is of help. Enjoy the walk and be sure to take plenty of liquids.
