hbowman on Eagle Mountain, 2010
by hbowman  2 Apr 2010
I've climbed Eagle twice in recent months. Thankfully I got a clear day last time. I approached it from the village of Attical and enjoyed good views of Slieve Binnian and Slievemoughanmore. At the summit I could see Donard, Commedagh, Bernagh, Hen and Cock. Nice views of Spelga Dam also. Heading towards Shanlieve and then Finlieve, which is marshy in certain places, there were great views of the Eastern Mournes from Slieve Muck to Wee Binnian. We then headed back via Red Moss River to Attical - a great walk which I would recommend. Took about 5-6 hours. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/217/comment/4573/
