Harry Goodman on Mullaghash, 2010
by Harry Goodman  30 Mar 2010
On 23 March 2010 looking for a looped walk over the three tops of Mullaghash, Barnes Top and Knockanbane Mountain we started at an open yard with an old public house (closed!) and other outbuildings, beside the roadside at Inchinagh C6239802490 A. In view of a number of carts and other farm machinery I was unsure about parking there but this doubt was quickly dispelled by the sheep farmer who owned the property and who readily invited us to park. Indeed in discussion with him he told us that he also owned the land on Knockanbane Mt. and had no problem with us walking there as long as we made sure to close any gates. Initially like others who have commented on this hill we walked NE along the road to an old farm lane on the right signed for Ballydonegan Sweat House where we turned right and walked down to a wooden bridge on the left. We crossed this bridge (which starts the short walk to the Sweat House) and walked around the field to another bridge which we also crossed . A sign board about the Sweat House is at the top left corner of the field. We went through a gate at the top right and then left down to and across a stream before a short walk up to a fence. We then turned right and followed the fence along to its high point on the NW shoulder of Mullaghash where we turned left across the fence and then made our way directly to the top of the hill. The climb was very typical of many hills in the Sperrins gradual but long, extending upwards on a good walking surface for about 1.3k crossing a number of false tops on the way. From the summit area we had views N to Inishowen and Slieve Snaght, to Binevenagh and Ben Braddagh to the East and the full splendour of the High Sperrins Ridge to the S. While there is discussion in other comments about the top of this hill possibly being one of the large rocks on or near the flatish summit area I favour a point on the heathery/peaty top consistent with the MV Grid Reference C641020 B. However, as is so common in these hills, one could be going around in circles arguing about which tuft of heather/peat is actually the high point! From the top we picked up a fence going S down to the coll with Barnes Top about 1k below. At the coll, had we not opted to climb Barnes Top, we could have walked SW to pick up a track at C6370000950 C which we could have followed around the bulk of Mullaghash back down to the road and our start point.
