Overlooks the Spelga Dam and the Deer's Meadow, the source of the River Bann. It is surprising to think that this river rises less than 10 miles from the coast near Newcastle, and yet it empties into the sea near Coleraine.   Slieve Muck is the 160th highest place in Ireland.

I Followed the Banns Road from the small car park at the start of this track, which is just past the Crocknafeola Wood on the Hilltown – Kilkeel road (J284214 B). This leads into the mountains as far as Lough Shannagh. The Lough is an ideal spot to stop for a while to take in the surrounding mountains. At the north end of the Lough I headed towards the col between Slieve Loughshannagh and Carn Mountain. I then followed the Mourne Wall south over Carn to Slieve Muck. From the trig pillar at the top of Slieve Muck I went south along the ridge of the mountain to a small cairn near the end of the ridge before returning north again looking for a place to go down the steep escarpment that runs along the east side of the mountain. I found a place approx 100 m from the wall. The descent down S Muck is very steep and needs to taken extremely carefully; this is the only tricky part of the route. When it’s safe to do so head back towards the Mourne Wall and follow it down to the Banns Road track to return to the car park. This route took me around 6 hours but that was taking my time to with plenty of stops to take in the scenery. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/151/comment/1033/
