Pleasant Walk Apart From The "Jagging"
by Aidy  9 Apr 2015
A fairly quick little hill to ascend which made for a nice spring evening walk. I parked at the junction of Kittybane and Gortinure Road, then walked north along the Kittybane Road until I reached the step over the wire fence shown in prehenrambler's photo. Crossing the field there was a stile and a small bridge over a ditch. I then continued east a short way through gorse which was fairly thick in places and difficult to get through. Emerging from this I then turned north again along the higher edge of two fields, taking this route because there were steps over the wire fences in this direction, suggesting access was not an issue. The summit was now to the east, and there was another patch of difficult gorse to get through.

At the top, there were good views southwest, upstream along the Foyle, southeast to Slievekirk and north to Derry and Lough Foyle. I could also see a quicker route back down to the Kittybane Road, directly west across open fields. I don't know if there are access problems crossing this land, but I was prepared to risk it rather than go through the gorse again! On the ascent, it may be better to go further north along the Kittybane Road than I did, before heading east for the summit, thus avoiding a "jagging" from the gorse. Up and down in about an hour.
