Be thankful for the Wind Farm approach track.
by Harry Goodman  25 Jun 2015
As I was in the area on 8 June 2015 completing my revised Local 100 I decided to also visit Stranisk. Fore-armed is forewarned and in this regard I was fortunate to use (and would recommend) Sandman's starting point at the entrance to the Screggagh Windfarm H4387956868 A on the left (W) side of the B122 from Fivemiletown to Fintona. The good track led me up W, then S and then W again to Turbine 6 H4295855967 B. Once past the turbine it was a short climb up the bank and out onto the broad heather covered swampy moorland to gain the unmarked high point of the hill. The walk up by the track was 2.5km. On my way back I decided to test the open ground and return directly from Turbine 6 across the moorland to Turbine 1, saving some 700 metres in distance over the trip up along the track.. Using this more direct approach up and back would therefore reduce the walk by some 1.5km. However be warned that the open ground is very rough and boggy, with patches of high heather. I would suggest, this is a walk where walkers will be glad to see and use a wind farm access track.. This is a low but very broad hill covered in high heather and bog so the track up makes for very easy progress. In all a walk of 5km up and back by the track or 3.5km if the more direct approach between Turbine 1 and 6 is taken. From the top there are expansive views to the high Sperrins, Slieve Beagh and Cuilcagh. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1128/comment/18161/
