I climbed Mullaghmore and White Mountain today. From Omagh, we drove through the heart of the Sperrins - through Greencastle and onto the six towns road. Just before Straw there is a cross roads where we turned left onto the Doon road, through Moneyneany and then veered right on to the Moydamlaght road. The Car park is on the edge of the road at the first road right in the forest (gr 743986 F). There is room for about 6 cars here and a lot of locals seem to walk their dogs so this little car park can be quite busy. We then headed into the forest along the track and at the first junction took a left which led straight up a hill. The track took us to the top of the forest where we made another right turn and out into open hillside at Craig-na-shoke. You know you’re approaching this when you see the sign "Moydamlaght Nature Reserve". At this point the weather was fabulous. Craig-na-shoke looked amazing. We gained 250m in height coming up through the forest. I had planned a tea break at the bottom of the cliff but I did a rece of the mound in front of the cliffs. I crossed the fence and up to the highest point on this mound. We had our tea with spectacular views over the area. This point was about 150m east of the forest track. We went back to the end of the path, followed the edge of the forest and used a small gully to begin the ascent of this route (742006 G). There was ice on the ground and the grass was slippery. Careful foot placement was required but the views were amazing as we quickly gained height. We then climbed towards the fence (Bearing of about 285o), crossed over the fence just before the unsightly telecommunications mast. We spent about 10 minutes on the summit taking in the breathtaking views on all three sides (there was cloud over White mountain behind us) It took about 2 hours to the top from the car park - including tea break and photography time! From here we moved back over to the fence and walked to where it veered west (C740009 H). Took a bear here on the summit on White Mountain - which was now visible (9o). This was heavy going, even though most of the bog was frozen, there was numerous streams to be negotiated and we found it near impossible to walk on the bearing without disappearing down a bog hole! we just trudged along - then in came a fall of snow driven by the wind, cloud cover came rolling behind us. This was hard work with little reward. The two summits are about 1Km apart) the summit was shrouded in mist that didn't let up while we had our lunch. After about 20 minutes we started our descent. I decided it was best to take a bearing on the U-bend of the service road that leads to the top of Mullaghmore (GR C734023 I) because visibility was so poor and all we had was endless bog in front of us. This worked and we arrived at the u turn give or take 20 or 30 M. From here we followed the service road to junction with Moydamlaght road and walked the 3.1Km along the road back to the car park.
