From N15 through Barnesmore Gap follow signs for Bluestack Drive around N side of Lough Eske to a carpark overlooking the Lough. Walk right along road to top of hairpin bends and take tarmac lane to left past Edergole Bridge. At a prominent walkers sign changes to a gravel track, fords a river ( large boulders can be used if high) and parallels with steep gorge of River Corabber. When turns away continue straight uphill to cut out a switchback and reach the head of the gorge. There is an impressive waterfall here dropping into a deep pool - pool can be reached by a steep path? for some good pics. Continue along river bank passing sluice gate for small hydro scheme BEWARE the ground from here becomes very wet and time is taken trying to find the driest line through the river valley. When a noisey river joins from the left follow it uphill towards Lough Belshade - even wetter here if you can believe it. Lough Belshade is a wild place (only slighty spoilt by the visible elements of the hydro scheme) backed on 3 sides by steep rocky ground (see pic). Follow the S shore to meet up with a stream coming down from the mountains (974894 B) and follow it uphill. The ground soon firms and are walking on areas of bare rock. Can follow this stream right up to the summit area but would be wise to take compass bearing as fragments among the rugged ground as crosss a level area before the final climb. Reach summit area just to the east of top of Ardnageer which has a prominent outcrop of white quartzite just to the N. Continue NE along good ground to reach the cairn at the top of Knockgorm. Extensive views N over the high hills of Donegal and W to Croaghgorm and Lavagh More. Steep drop from here NE to col, passing some fascinating glacially deposited boulders, with little valley containing a lough. Climb up 300 ft to reach the top of Croaghbane with fine views over Lough Belshade to Lough Eske. At summit cairn the views stretch to the Sperrins and Cuilcaigh and over Donegal Bay to Benbulbin and Sligo Hills. Met two people walking dogs on way to L Belshade but that was it. For completion of this walk see Croaghaniwore. Trackback:
