The element aichill also occurs in Glenelly, at the head which Carnanelly stands. Patrick McKay suggests that the look-out point in both names may be the mountain of Carnanelly itself (DUPN).   Carnanelly is the 386th highest place in Ireland.

Carnanelly is the only big hill on the southern side of the Genelly Valley and Goles Forest continues right up to just below its summit. It is a great viewpoint for looking across to the big hills on the northern side of the valley. Park at Goles Wood (683942 E) and follow track into forest, keeping left as climb up until parallel with small stream. Cross stream onto hillside before path heads back into the forest and climb over difficult ground SSE towards summit of Slieveaddy (486m) - there is a sheep track wich makes life a whole lot easier. From the top there are good views down over Lough Ouske ( one of the few bodies of water of any size in the Sperrins) and across the valley to the northern range of the Sperrins. Pick up fence at summit and follow west climbing gently above top of Goles Forest. The view is restricted tot he south here across to Slieve Gallion and Lough Fea with the Mournes and Cooley mountains in the distance. After 1.5 hours reach rocky summit with a rare cairn ( handy shelter from hefty shower which blew across). There are slightly higher rocky outcrops a little further along the top again with excellent panoramic views. Descend along fence and take an adjoining fence heading off to the right (north) which heads down into the Genelly Valley again ( pic was taken here looking across to Meenard and Mullaghaneany). Make for the edge of Goles Forest where a stream has cut a steep gulley and makes for an interesting descent. Just after crossing a fence over a little waterfall and before some buildings cross into the forest - the track is only some 30 ft in. Follow this downhill back to the carpark. 2.5 hours. Trackback:
