The given name of the upland sprawl to the SW of Dunloy is only vaguely optimistic; it is indeed fairly long given its modest vertical stature. Quite broad too, to give it due credit. The 'mountain' bit is slightly pushing it, mind.

My ascent came at the end of a 'stolen Sunday afternoon out and about'; indeed, the shadows were almost as long as the hill by the time I found the road junction at (016185 A) and turned the car up Mallaboy Lane. This is an initially unpromising thoroughfare, being barely surfaced and potholed to an adolescent's face kind of degree. But soon you're covering light coloured concrete, as relatively new houses built hereabouts have evidently warranted improvements in the road. I left the car at (009182 C); the surface soon deteriorates, and while you could drive further polite 'No Parking' notices make it feel unwise. Continue up the track through a gate onto the squat brow of the hill; I was startled by some wild horses as the gloaming began to gloam even more extensively in this vicinity. Once you can see the houses on the far side of the ridge (or the base of the gathering of wind turbines ahead) turn right/north onto the trackless heathland of the top. I walked about 300m in this direction, squinting into the murk and taking in a good five or six potential highest points. I'm pretty happy that at least one of them was the right one...just don't ask me which.

The views are extensive but with a lot of foreground...see pic. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1272/comment/15886/
