Truskmore is in the middle of an area which appears to have significant access problems at
the moment. A number of months ago I picked out what seemed from map OS 16 to be a good approach from the southern side - a track starting at G 757 436 A(very near Glencar waterfall).

This started out well enough with a pleasant walk through mixed woodland, but as the track exited to moorland via a gate there was a sign "No trespassers - ICSA). I retreated to my car,
and driving further along the north side of Glencar Lough noticed several more of these signs
along the roadside, which would rule all southern approaches out of bounds.

I have also done a reconnoitre from the northern side along the Gleniff horseshoe road. On
turning on to this road the first landmark of any note is a large sign declaring "90% of Gleniniff
is private land - No Hillwalkers please". Notwithstanding this sign, I presume that there could not be an objection to using the road to the TV transmitter to reach the top, given that this is publicly owned. However it would appear to be prudent to avoid the surrounding moorland (and the peaks of Slievemore, Tievebaun and Benwiskin). I would be interested if anyone else has
views on this. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/2051/
