No easy way
by chalky  29 Oct 2014
No easy way to this one but I saw what looked like a bridge at F 845113 starA from a nearby hill and sure enough a concrete footbridge to a cottage which looked occupied. It's still a long way to reach even rising ground but it's not as bad as some . Linkback:

Dry Weather Hill.
by sandman  9 Oct 2017
Best saved for not just a dry day but for a dry spell of weather due to the fact that you need to ford the Owenduff river. Parking is available at a small car park used by fishermen located at F8659907192 starB beside what is called the blue lodge a fairly basic accommodation. Not to worry an information board is located in the car park with details of the Rock House estate which i understand are owners of the fishing rights. From the car park follow the old historical trail which leads across to the Bangor Trail crossing some foot bridges to begin with and passing some old ruined houses to reach the river unfortunately no foot bridge exists and underfoot conditions can be slippy. After this just follow the trail where i decided to turn left for the summit at F8781208163 starC . Views from the summit on a clear day should be rewarding but unfortunately i did not get to experience then. Linkback:

Isolated, you will work for it

For context, see my entry for Tawnyanruddia, where I described a three day trip starting and ending in Bangor Erris.
On the Sunday morning, after a tough day on the Saturday, I woke in a refreshed and optimistic frame of mind. I decided to continue on and try to summit Sheannmore and then Slieve Alp. My main reasoning being, well to be honest, would I ever have a better chance. The weather was so excellent, the conditions ideal, and I was already here in the midst of what I often hear is Ireland's most remote range.
With camp struck, and breakfast eaten, I went down the steep slopes in a generally westerly direction, crossed over the Bangor trail and on to a rock tor on a prominence at F88427 12300 starD. Here I left my heavy rucksack safely and easily found and made a beeline for the summit of Sheannmore. It was easy going,the vegetation closely grazed and the ground relatively smooth and before I knew it I was nibbling a soggy snack bar, melted in the sunshine, on a rock at the top.
The views are particularly good here, especially to the west and south, and it was a lovely place to spend a little time. I was very glad I did this hill, because although it's height is not considerable, it's remoteness is, and one would certainly work hard to tick it off for it's own sake Linkback:
