As on Slieve Meelmore, there is a tower near the summit of Slieve Commedagh. On the southern side, at the head of the Annalong Valley, is a spectacular group of granite tors known as 'the Castles'. These can be appreciated from the Brandy Pad, a track once used by smugglers. During the 18th Century the Mourne Mountains were notorious for smuggling commodities such as wine, silk, tobacco, tea and brandy, mainly from Britain. The cargo would be brought ashore under the cover of darkness and taken over the mountains to Hilltown and the surrounding areas.   Slieve Commedagh is the second highest mountain in the Mourne Mountains area and the 64th highest in Ireland. Slieve Commedagh is the second highest point in county Down.

Slieve Commedagh is a climb of 185 metres from the Slieve Donard col and half way up the ground levels out significantly. In mist you might think you have reached the summit at that stage although you will quickly realise that there is still some climbing to be done. The summit is 200 metres or so from the wall and is a broad flat area as shown in the photo. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/2503/

came up to commedagh [765mtrs] from hares gap....a tough pull up in lovely sun shine [june week end 08 ] but the super view was worth the effort with the sea and the town of newcastle below us and surrounded by the mighty mourne mountains it was one of the many high lights of a great trip to the mournes...hillwalker59....the small farmer Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/3210/

Commedagh's castles viewed from the Brandy Pad - more proof as if it was needed, that the Mournes contain some of the most fascinating rock formations in the country. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/63/comment/1331/
