Why is Mid Hill called Mid Hill? I assume it is because when viewed from afar it is the central summit in the group of three between Glenravel and the Braid valley (the other two being Carncormick and Collin Top). I'm surprised there is only one other comment on Mid Hill as it is a very accessible hill with fabulous views on a clear day. I parked at the car park beside the Dungonnell reservoir (192172 A). The summit area can be seen straight ahead. The ascent is fairly easy - just the odd small burn and fence to negotiate. Try to avoid the extensive patches of knee-deep heather as this will slow your progress somewhat. The 438m summit as shown on the OS map (197155 B) is marked by a large fence post but this isn't actually the highest point of Mid Hill. About 500m east of here is the true highest point which is unmarked on the ground and according to the OS map is actually slightly higher than the 440m given by MV. Nevertheless anywhere on top of Mid Hill is good for views if you are lucky like me to have a very clear day like today. To the south-east is Soarns Hill and beyond that Agnew's Hill - then to the south lies Slemish with Big Collin and then Divis almost directly in line behind it. Coming west round past Lough Neagh and Carncormick you can see the Sperrins clearly - I could easily pick out Sawel peeping over the side of Mullaghaneany and to the right the ridge of hills from Carntogher to Benbradagh. Skerry Hill, Slievenanee and Trostan dominate the view to the north-east and the magnificent Glenariff valley to the north-west allows views out to sea and to Scotland. Great views and an easy climb - what could be better? I returned to the car by way of ascent - you can be up and down in less than an hour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/652/comment/4728/
