Access issues to dull top, beautiful trail nearby.
by Colin Murphy  11 Sep 2023
There are access issues with this hill (Forth 'Mountain' definitely a misnomer) from both the east and north. There is actually a drivable road from the north, which you access according to Google Maps but in fact has multiple red 'Private Road' and 'No entry' signs all over the place. The other trail to the SE is similarly adorned. However, if you don't mind a longer walk, there is an official hiking trail at the Forth Mountain Pennylands car park at S97172 18074 starC, about 2.5km to the SW. Proceed up the trail for 600m, turn right and continue for another 1.7km to reach the rock outcrop that marks the highpoint, which is surrounded by transmitters/buildings and farm structures. While in the area make sure you take the time to do the short Carrigfoyle Lough Loop about 1km north of Forth. Starting at the car park at S98615 20129 starD, follow the waymarked track as it loops around a long-disused quarry that filled up naturally with water many years ago to form a stunning little lough surrounded by woodland.
