Moneyeany Moydamlaght and the Mullagh
by gerrym  5 Jan 2012
Mullaghmore, like Slieve Gallion, is one of the distinctive tops that can be seen from the east of Northern Ireland when looking to the 'wild west'. It is also very accessible using the tracks rising steeply through Moydamlaght Forest, just past the hamlet of Moneyeany (grid 742986 C sheet 13).

There is room for several cars at the forest entrance. A beautiful stand of beech trees greet the eyes which can walk up through to reach the forest track. The forest has a maze of tracks but they are well defined on the map and a path can easily be charted to the cliffs at Craig-na-shoke (747002 D). But just incase after coming out of the beech trees it is right, left uphill, right, left uphill and keep going!

The forest is a bit of a wildlife oasis and is dotted with blue barrels on stands with seed feeders at the bottom. These attract squirrels, grouse and every other sort of bird you might imagine - walk quietly! There is also a bit of a puzzle - a large fenced area in the forest full of huts, feeders and zipwires - a bit like an adventure camp for wildlife. I have tried to find out more but to no avail!

Recent clearfell has opened out views before leave the forest at a height of 400m with the impressive cliffs of Craig na Shoke in front. Can continue straight up hillside fairly easily or more satisfyingly skirt bottom of cliffs and then climb above. The views really open out east over Lough Neagh and to Sleive Gallion. There are some new substancial fences here, if keep above there is a crossing point

Aim for the prominent communications mast at the summit of Mullaghmore about 1.5 km away. The going can be wet and near the summit there are large areas of thick sticky eroded peat. From the summit there are spectacular views west over the Sperrins and east to the line of hills starting with Knocklayd all the way to Slieve Donard. It is not often that other people have been present on this top when i have been, despite the service road to its summit.

From summit head west to pick up the line of cliffs on the eastern flank of the hill. Great views north up the Roe valley with steep prows of hills pouting along its length. These can be followed to the ravine cutting down hillside for Baroney Bridge (729016 E) which is a great little descent with waterfalls and places to stop for a bite to eat. On reaching road turn left (south) and follow back to carpark. Time taken 3 hours. Linkback:
