Nice gentle start to a Saturday circuit in the Mournes. From Ott car park up the Ott track to the stile between Slieve Lough Shannagh and Carn mountain. No navigation difficulties despite low cloud at first, save for remnants of snow patches which at times hid the track. Once the wall is reached at the stile it's a simple turn right and walk generally southerly to the summit. From there we crossed over the wall to continue on to Slieve Muck. By now the cloud was clearing and blue skies were giving us a pep in our step. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/300/comment/4475/
