Picture: The view west to the higher Sperrins from Mullaghmore summit
 
everything but the kitchen sink
by slemish  19 Jun 2011
Mullaghmore is somewhat overlooked in the Sperrin range due to the presence of higher summits nearby but it is still an excellent mountain in its own right. I took the easy option of parking beside the gate on the Moydamlaght road at the start of the access road to the transmitter (733019 A) and ascended the mountain from there. Not too steep at all and you quickly reach the summit plateau area with the views ever-widening as you ascend. I noted marymac's comment that some moron had left an old gas cooker near the summit but since then it has been joined by an old fridge, electric hob and washing machine. Perhaps someone is trying to design the ultimate 'open-plan' kitchen on top of Mullaghmore? On a more serious note, one wonders what kind of person would spoil our beautiful mountain scenery by such careless actions. The whole summit area is a bit of a dump actually with bricks, timber and pieces of metal lying around while the huge communications mast and dilipidated building associated with it are very much an eyesore. The actual 550m summit is just behind the mast when approaching via the road - one large boulder sticks out of a small raised area and that is the summit, unmarked of course like so many of the Sperrins. Despite the general unpleasantness of the summit area the views from Mullaghmore are very good indeed. From the higher Sperrins to the west, south to Slieve Gallion and Lough Fea and east to the Antrim Hills. There is an interesting view to the north where Binevenagh just peeks out behind Benbradagh and further still across Lough Foyle lie the hills of Inishowen. To the north-west I could easily pick out the distinctive profiles of Muckish and Loughsalt Mountain in Donegal. On a very clear day I expect the Mournes and Scottish isles would also be visible from this mountain. The walk could easily be extended to near-neighbour White Mountain if desired but I kept that for another day. Instead of returning via the access road, I took the direct route straight down the mountainside and back to the car. I would definitely recommend this hill if in the area due to the easy climb and long-range views. It took me less than an hour to get up and down.
