Meeting up with the Mourne Wall
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  8 Nov 2011
Slieve Loughshannagh is one of those mountains in the Mournes most likely to be climbed by walkers out on a longer walk over tops along the line of the Mourne Wall. From the car park on the Slievenaman Rd J280 279 A. cross the road to a wooden stile and go SE along a good track. Some 150m along, at a fork, go right and follow the track uphill to it's end before heading E up to a col J291 268 B, between Slieve Loughshannagh and Carn. Turn left and keeping the Mourne Wall on the right climb up the slope to the summit at J3028126221 C. Views from the top are quite extensive along the line of the Mourne Wall NE to Meelbeg and Bernagh and SW over Carn to Slieve Muck and the S coast. Below is Lough Shannagh and to the E Doan, Cove, Slievelamigan and Slieve Binnian form an impressive backdrop. Return by way of ascent. For a longer, but more satisfying walk to Slieve Lough Shannagh, park at the Banns Road off the B27 J287 214 D and follow the track N for some 4.5k up to Lough Shannagh. Once there, go around the right side (E), to pick up a rough track J299 263 E, turn left and follow it up NW to the col between Carn and Slieve Loughshannagh J291 268 B. Cross the stile, turn right and follow the Mourne Wall up to the top. Return by way of ascent or, if two cars are available, consider leaving one at the Slievenaman Rd car park J280 279 A and combine the two routes described above for a linear walk. Linkback:
