Since I was already climbing Slieve Gallion today it required virtually no extra effort to bag the NE Top as well. The Tullynagee road from Moneymore extends all the way up to the car park at the ugly transmitter station. Incidentally this car park is the highest point on a public road in Northern Ireland climbing to an impressive 490m (813894 B). The 496m summit cairn is about 100m behind the mast - just a short stroll. Like the main summit of Slieve Gallion the views from the NE summit are incredible if you're lucky enough to get a clear day like today. The county tops of seven different counties were visible - Sawel looked particularly majestic in the afternoon sunshine - as well as numerous smaller summits throughout the north of Ireland. I would recommend this mountain to anyone who loves long views - you really can see for miles in every direction. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/470/comment/5834/
