The irascible final fling of the Sperrins
Short Summary created by Peter Walker,  1 Apr 2013
Mullaghcroy is the last western hurrah of the Sperrins before the lowlands of the Lough Derg basin take shape, and in keeping with much of the rest of the range it is slightly annoying but undeniably charismatic. The hill bears witness to varying stages of forestry, and the felled upper slopes (now totally denuded of trees as of April 2013) faintly resemble the aftermath of a comet strike.

Start at (333805 A) ('Hall' on the Discovery Series map) where there is room for several cars. Follow the slightly overgrown lane in a north-westerly direction, staying on it for roughly a kilometre until the unmistakable felled-but-not-levelled higher stretches open out on the right. From here one should make your own way north-east to the summit (marked by a conspicuous bit of metal scaffolding). This will turn out to be easy or semi-frustrating depending on luck; most of the ground yields easily but some of the decaying vegetation is awkward and some of the benign-looking bog turns out to be rather deeper than expected (terrain that my dog did not enjoy at all). From the summit the views are of lowlands and lesser hills, but at least the absence of trees allows them to be enjoyed in all directions.
