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.

Climbed from the road, up the Mourne Wall, is a good challenge. The view is excellent into the Mountain range and back towards Slieve Gullion. A perfect way to start a trek along the Mourne wall. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/151/comment/920/
