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 159th highest place in Ireland.

Up from Carn to the summit is not really difficult, even when there's still snow lying. It was a great bonus to find a (rare) trig pillar in excellent order to complement the ubiquitous (anyone check the spelling please!) walls. I've been meaning to climb this one for ages, and was glad of the opportunity. We went down along the wall east towards the Bann's Road, which turned out to be quite steep in places and at one point the wall is replaced by a fraying fence. Worth the effort, definitely.
