Alternative approach from the north (Part 2)
by dr_banuska  13 Apr 2010
The terrain got more and more featureless as I walked for what seemed like ages – quite unsettling. Luckily though, I recognized a patch of unhealthy forestry to the SW which I knew from last time was close to SB’s main summit. Having veered too far to the E, I now headed for the forestry, passing through an old wire fence and following it uphill. I knew Lough Sallagh and the SE top were nearby but because the lough is higher than much of the surrounding terrain it can be elusive.

As others have said, the SE top is on a small but distinctive bump just to the SE of Lough Sallagh. The map says the lough is 368m, just 5m lower than the peak - if anything it feels like less. An old beer tin lying in a hole was the only feature to suggest this was a county high point! What caught my attention however was a prominent ring contour nearby to the NE (in Tyrone), which was obviously higher than the SE top. Three5four0 mentioned this rise, E of the one with the mast, and I agree that anyone else up here with an altimeter should try to find out if this is Beagh’s true summit.

I then headed back via the rise with the mast at 532440 C. From there I could see the forest I’d started from and I headed towards it. This time I passed to the W of the hillside marked on the map as Packulla, and spotted what seemed to be loughs Eshbrick and Glenbower (again) to the E. While the terrain on the whole was tussocky and reedy, it was largely dry (away from the loughs) and so wasn’t any worse than that I’d covered recently in the Sperrins. I would suggest this as an interesting alternative approach to Slieve Beagh, though longer than those from the S and SE – maybe better for a second visit. PS – Thankfully I didn’t come across any pumas, though I must admit the possibility played on my mind, especially if the dog suddenly stopped in his tracks focused on a spot in the distance!
