A tale of two tops !
by Harry Goodman  22 Aug 2015
The currently listed co-ordinates for the top of this hill indicate the top lies on the SE shoulder and concur with the co-ordinates listed when the new tops were first added in January 2014. On 6 August 2015 I climbed the hill, or more correctly,thought I did. I started from the car park on the A46 below the Cliffs of Magho H0614058240 starA and climbed up the steep track and steps to the view point in L Navar Forest H0611757618 starB.

Once there I simply followed the directions in the various comments along the forest tracks up to the communications masts and out on to the higher ground behind the masts and the top of the hill H0662657184 starC' or so I thought. A check of my GPS reading showed that I was some 400m NW of the listed top !! As time dictated I return to my car by my outward route I was not able to go in search of the listed top. When I got home I examined both the OSNI Outdoor Pursuits map for Lower Lough Erne 1:25,000 Scale (1984) and the more recent OSNI Activity Map for the area of the same scale (2008). Both maps show two distinct ring contours on this hill at the 440m level but neither has a spot height shown above 440m. One lies to the N and includes the communications masts and the other to the SE and includes the currently listed MV top. The high point within the N ring contour behind the masts using a hand held GPS showed a height of 248 metres.

While it is my intention to go back and seek out the listed top I thought it worthwhile to add this comment to make other MV'ers aware of the position. Why was the SE point taken in preference to that to the N given that no spot heights are shown. Maybe some of the members who have indicated they have climbed the hill but have made no comments might like to give a view. Having been there, I would suggest that the high point could well lie within the N ring contour but this is only based on my visual impression at the time and a dubious hand held GPS reading. Maybe someone can throw light on why a point within the SE rather than the N contour was chosen as the top of the hill ? Linkback:
