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.

Slieve Muck - Ott walk
by hbowman  23 May 2010
I climbed Slieve Muck, 9th highest mountain in Northern Ireland, today for the first time. Parked the car at Ott car park grid and followed the path round Ott and headed towards Carn. Before we came to Carn, we decided to take a short-cut towards the Mourne wall leading to Slieve Muck. Fantastic views opened up of Spelga Dam to the west and Doan, Donard, Commedagh to the east. The summit gives great views of eastern and western Mournes because of its central location and is one of the best panoramas in the Mournes as one can see Lough Shannagh, Spelga Dam, Silent Valley and part of Ben Crom reservoir. We returned the route we came - 5.2 miles round trip, but one which I would strongly recommend. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/151/comment/5819/
