wicklore on Slieve Loughshannagh, 2008
by wicklore  13 Oct 2008
Leaving the summit of Ott Mountain I headed east down into boggy ground and up again until I reached the Mourne Wall. I think the wall is amazing and I always feel great when it comes into view-something about its solid durability that gives security. I turned left and followed the wall to a stile at J291 268 B where I crossed and continued up to the summit of Slieve Loughshannagh. The cloud was everywhere and at first there were no views. However at the summit the cloud began to break and the spectacular profile of Doan shifted in and out of view, with Lough Shannagh and Silent Valley Reservoir shining darkly silver when they appeared out of the cloud before me. I was entranced by the brooding landscape and stopped to enjoy the sporadic views for some time. Although the day turned out to be warm and clear, my photo shows the mysterious views I had during those few moments from the summit. From Slieve Loughshannagh I then headed for Ben Crom.
