New Comment: Forest to crag to moorland summit
by pdtempan  5 Sep 2021
Two of us climbed Mullaghmore on Sun Aug 15th to recce this walk for a future group walk. We parked at the Moydamlaght Forest car park at H742986 A mentioned by gerrym. There are blue/yellow signs here for the Ulster Way and red/yellow signs for Slí Hiúdaí/Hudy's Way. Once you start walking in the forest, you will also see the "Eagles Rock Trail" waymarked. It seems that Eagles Rock is another name for Creig na Seabhac / Craig-na-shoke, the rather splendid crag which you meet on emerging from the forest at a stile. This crag can be avoided by passing to the left (NW), or skirted to the right (SE), which brings you into closer contact with the rock scenery which is probably the highlight of this route. We chose the latter option, climbing the easy grassy gully shown in the photo. From here, it was simply a matter of crossing the moorland of the summit plateau, ascending gently for a distance of just over 1km, to reach the summit marked by the antenna. We saw no evidence of the dumped household appliances mentioned by slemish, so hopefully these have since been cleared. On the return we cut down the steep slope earlier, passing on the other side (NW) of the crag. Overall it took us about 4 hours at a leisurely pace. About 1 hour of this was breaks: half hour breather and tea on the way up, half hour lunch on the way down. We also spent a bit of time botanising. It would probably take no more than 2.5 hours plus breaks for reasonably fit walkers not dawdling like us. I can highly recommend this walk as an interesting combination of forest (not all conifers, at least at the edges), crags and moorland Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/359/comment/23263/
