Alternative approach from the north (Part 1)

This is a county top I'd been planning to bag for some time, having visited the main summit a year ago from the Fermanagh side. I returned at the weekend with the dog, taking advantage of the great weather and intrigued by recent discussion of Monaghan's mundane high point, including wicklore's somewhat disturbing evidence of a big cat lurking in these bleak hills!

Unlike previous posters, I decided to approach from the northern (Tyrone) side. Owing to Harry's comments on the inaccuray of OSNI map 18 in relation to this top, I bought a copy of OSI Map 28A. I opted to park on a bend along the minor road (signposted as a dead end) at 544468 A. This can be quite easily reached from the A4 Dungannon-Enniskillen road, by taking the 1st left past Clogher village coming from the E, signposted Ashfield. You pass Brackenridge's Folly, an imposing hilltop tower built by an unpopular 19th century landlord as his mausoleum. The start point could also be reached off the Monaghan-Clogher road.

I followed the road S to a barrier at the start of the forest - there would've been room to park here too. I headed uphill through the forest (passing a discarded microwave) to another barrier at the other end, via a short, heavily overgrown section. From here the track branches off to the right and became quite muddy, before ending altogether at 548457 B. I continued S in the same general direction, passing a tiny brook marked on the map and aiming for a couple of lonely trees up on the undulating hillside. From the top I could see down to what must have been Glenbower Lough, one of many small loughs in these hills. From the height I could see SW towards the old mast mentioned by three5four0. In hindsight I should’ve aimed for this but instead skirted the lough and continued uphill again still in a southerly direction. Linkback:
