A Wind Farm with a county highpoint in the middle
by osullivanm  7 Oct 2013
It's difficult to know how to describe this county highpoint. It was possible to drive up the access road to the windfarm to within 94 metres of the top. A few minutes later , I had completed my final, 27th county top. The experience was a very interesting meander into the developing world of wind power in the midlands. There's a tremendous elegance about these modern windmills as they whirr gracefully in this bleak spot.

This place is well worth a visit, perhaps not so much for the walking involved as for the sense of being drawn into a surreal experience on the highest point in Roscommon. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1055/comment/15216/

-to close a day of CHP's
by paddyobpc  24 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 05 Jun 2016. After completing Truskmore and Truskmore SE Cairn we followed the Sat Nav to the start point of Roscommon’s CHP, Seltannasaggart SE Slope as indicated in Kieron Gribbon’s book “Ireland's County High Points – A Walking Guide”. We joined the Miners Way for part of the route to the summit. A small heap of stones marks the highest point and it is surrounded by approx 50 Wind Turbines. It was a relatively easy walk after Truskmore a rise of just 118m.
See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1055/comment/18812/

Tough Soles - Roscommon's County High Point
by ToughSoles  12 Nov 2021
Went up Seltannasaggart SE Slope recently as part of the County High Point list.

We approached Seltannasaggart along the Miner's Way & Historical Trail from the south west side of Corry Mountain Bog. (Route B: G 895 179 starA B) Our hike was an out and back, and was around a 5.5km round trip. Parking in a large access road entrance, we started our hike up from the small boreen that runs parallel to the Arigna River on its northern bank. Turning left off the lane, we’re on a grassy slope that leads up to the bog, and we slowly climb our way upwards. Hitting a wire fence, we cross it and turn right as the grass gives way to heather. Following the fence across the side of the hill, we then turn sharply left and over another stile, the heather now giving way to wetter bogland as we continue uphill once more. We spend most of our time slowly meandering our way up the hill, knowing there’s no real time limit for our evening hike, the breeze ensuring that we never stop for too long. Throughout this bogland we try to stick to the line that the waymarkers make across the horizon, as there are old mine shafts on these hillsides.

Reaching the end of the bog, we hit the wind farm access roads and turn left, continuing up hill. It’s not a far walk through the wind farm, but being a place that all looks the same, it’s tricky to pinpoint exactly where we’re aiming for. If you reach a large concrete building, you’ve gone too far. How we locate the small cairn is by standing higher up the hill than it, and looking back down at it.

We really enjoyed this approach option! More musings on this hill - https://toughsoles.ie/blog/2021/seltannasaggart Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1055/comment/23291/

Roscommon CHP
by TommyV  12 Nov 2021
It's always a bit of a let down for a county when its CHP is actually on the slope of a hill or mountain where the actual summit lies inside another county, Leitrim, Monaghan and Roscommon know what I mean. Settannasaggart is one of the lesser impressive county tops with a small pile of rocks lying in the middle of a windfarm. Gribster has provided good directions. The actual summit of Seltannasaggart lies about 500 meters away in Leitrim so a bit of fence hopping and hag climbing will get you there. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1055/comment/20182/

County Highpoints done and dusted!
by Colin Murphy  30 Dec 2016
It is unfortunate that my final county highpoint worked out to be Seltannasaggart SE Slope, but them’s the way the dice roll. Some of those 27 are undeniably majestic, others as dull as ditchwater, and this one falls into the latter category. I took simon3’s route 1 from the east, and while I was tempted to drive almost to the summit by way of a nearby access road, I decided that since this was my final one, I better make some effort. But little effort was required. You start well above 300m elevation and a 2km long, gently rising, stony track leads you virtually to the ‘summit’, which is a slightly elevated bump rising above the surrounding sea of bog. It was misty and dull the day I walked, and while there was a sense of bleakness, the presence of a nearby wind farm and telephone poles marching along the landscape destroyed any feeling of wilderness. Still, that’s that lot bagged once and for all! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1055/comment/18752/
