MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Slieve Gallion NE Top (<i>Sliabh gCallann (mullach thoir thuaidh)</i>) in area Sperrin Mountains, Ireland
Picture: Summit cairn just north of mast
 
Drive all the way to the top (almost)
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  30 Jan 2014
Taking the A29 north from Moneymore, after a few hundred metres you will see the Tullynagee road on the left, signposted for S. Gallion. This road continues almost all the way to the summit of S. Gallion NE Top, which is topped by a tall telecoms mast. There is a large area to park. The highest point (non-man made) however, lies about 150m further north, and is marked by a cairn and a wooden post. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/470/comment/5229/
