SLIEVE BEAGH SE TOP FROM CARRICKNABROCK
by bsheils  23 Sep 2012
(19/09/12) Commenced walk to Slieve Beagh SE Top from pull-in point/lay-by at grid ref. H562 432 D along minor road on Carricknabrock. Walked SSW for short distance on this road to where it meets Sliabh Beagh Way (SBW) at H561 428 E and then following SWB I proceeded NW on gravel trackway as far as H558 432 F where SBW turns SW direction leaving gravel track and onto bog track (note if following SBW markers the marker is obscured at this turn-off). SBW then enters area of open bogland and crosses metal bridge at H553 429 G. Due to distance between waymarkers and indistinct terrain and track care needed in poor visibility and I found the going quite soft in places. SBW appears to deviate further north from Lough Aportan than shown on map print-out that I was using and joins track that descends to T-junction at H545 424 H. Turning right at T-junction I left the SBW to follow westward bound track that contoured around side of hill to where it stopped at H540 425 I and then proceeded NW across open mountain to find the county top.

I agree with Harry Goodman's comment that navigational accuracy is needed here especiallly in poor visibility. The day I walked here visibility was fine but I noticed hardly any significant features to assist navigation apart from the Mullaghfad Forest in distance to my left on my ascent. I approached this section of the walk by initally walking on compass bearing towards the top before referring to my GPS to hone in on grid ref for the top as per MV. However, as distance from end of last track above to top is 1.3km walking on compass bearing over this distance is not easy with virtually no distinguishing features to take bearing towards along the way. I reached county top as shown on photos by dr_banuska and Harry Goodman. It is indeed an undistinguished county top as noted by the latter contributor though another county top ticked off the list!

I returned by the same route as above that I had followed to the Sliabh Beagh SE top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1053/comment/14821/
