Started this walk at a track in the townland of Aghanlish 80481 52522 G (95m). Parking is a problem as the road is very narrow. I went to the bungalow on the other side of the hedge to seek permission to park. However, there was no one home. A woman in the neighbouring house was quick to spot me and to investigate what I was doing there. When I explained that I was looking for permission to park she directed me to the first house on the left about 500m further down the road, which belonged to a family member of the people who owned the bungalow. The gentleman at the house was very obliging and allowed me to park in the drive of the bungalow. I pulled in well to the side so as not to cause any obstruction. The track runs from the road for about 500m before reaching a gate at the side of an outbuilding and then continues for about another 100 metres or so before it peters out naturally into the lower end of a Burn. From here I took a bearing of 116 degrees SW. I kept to the left bank of the Burn until I was able to cross above it to a fence 82290 51925 H (347m). Once over the fence I continued on the same bearing veering to the right of the main bulk of the mountain so as to reach the lower end of an obvious ridge. At the top of the ridge I turned left towards the mountain climbing a narrow spine, the top of which 82755 51852 I (495m), adjoins an eroded area of peat and shingle just below the top of the plateau. I took a bearing of 56 degrees NE from here, which is about 500m from the summit cairn. However, if you veer left to the end the eroded area there is a fairly well worn track which swings across to the other side of the plateau and from there all the way to the summit marked by a Trig point & cairn. GPS reading here was 83303 52060 J with a height of 522m. The views from the summit are spectacular. To the west Tievebaun & Truskmore looked resplendent as they basked in the sunshine. Across Donegal Bay Slieve League was clearly visible. Below and to the east the impressive Lough Melvin and beyond that to the north-east Lough Erne. Due south the hills of County Leitrim were bathed in wonderful sunshine. The walk (I returned by same route) took 2 and a half hours and was one of the most pleasant I have enjoyed in recent times. On way back to car I noticed some fresh blood on the track and shortly after a sheep with an obvious limp and in some distress. On arriving at the car the gentleman who owned the bungalow was home and I informed him about the animal. He in turn informed his brother-in-law who owned the sheep. Trackback:
