While it seems most skip from Ott to Slieve Loughshannagh, Ott to Carn was the obvious route for me. The snow conditions made the walk extra special. Carn offers great views over Lough Shannagh and also offers the option to skirt across to Slieve Muck. Given the snow conditions on the day we decided to use the security of the mourne wall as a handrail feature and trek across to Slieve Loughshannagh. There is a stile at the coll between Carn and Loughshannagh which can be usd to cross the mourne wall and gain access down toward the lough shore. The photo goves a good indication of how high the snow had drifted at this stile...the wall is nearly 6ft at this location!! Refer to Slieve Loughshannagh for the rest of the route.
