From Glenshane Forest
by dino  28 Mar 2014
One of the strangest little hills I've climbed! I came from the North having parked at a forest gate on the A6 Glenshane Road and walked in through Glenshane Forest. The approach from the little grotto at the edge of the forest is barely visible but has a couple of simple signposts. The ground above the forest is very wet and boggy and there is extensive evidence of peat harvesting operations. The top has great views in all directions but it's hard to identify. I plumped in the end for the lone post standing forlornly on the edge of a peat hag. This top was completed as part of a 20km circuit which I will upload as a route.
