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.

On the pigs back
by darrenf  22 Jan 2011
Set off on a simple Ott-Carn-Slieve Muck route on January 6th. Parked at the small car park on the Ott Road at J 280 278 A. A stile across from this carpark gives direct access to Ott mountain along a well established track. The track actually skirts around Ott but the top can easily be tackled using this track. Great views of the Spelga Dam are on offer from Ott and it really is worth the short trip to the summit. The traverse from Ott to Carn can be wet and boggy underfoot but thankfully during a week of hard frost the conditions were very firm and before long we reached the mourne wall.

Carn offers great views over Lough Shannagh and also offers the option to skirt across to Slieve Loughshannagh using the mourne wall. There is a stile at the coll between Carn and Loughshannagh which can be usd to cross the mourne wall and gain access down toward the lough shore. Our goal was Slieve Muck so off we set along the wall across the broad shoulder of Muck. To reach the trig pillar on top of Slieve Muck you must cross the mourne wall using one of the many stiles!!! Due to its central location Muck does offer great views of the Mournes east to west. We decided to take the sensible descent from Muck and retraced our steps back to Carn and from there on to Ott once more. Another enjoyable day in the Mournes....I know there will be more to come...I swear Bearnagh and Meelmore were both taunting me on the return leg!
