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 158th highest place in Ireland.

Shaped like a pig it might be, but today it was covered in a white duvet. After seeing Wicklore's photo below, i have attached a photo to show the current snow cover, the stile in my photo is the one to the left in Wicklore's post. Yep, it really was that deep, good enough for ski touring and snow shoeing, which was going on ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/151/comment/4326/
