Slemish is remarkable for its pudding-like shape, which makes it unmistakable from any angle. It is particulary prominent seen from the west near Ballymena. This shape is due to its origin as a volcanic plug. According to tradition, it was on Slemish that St. Patrick spent six bleak years as a slave herding sheep and swine. Patrick was captured in Britain at the age of 16 and sold as a slave to an Irish chief named Milchú.   Slemish is the 775th highest place in Ireland.

A fascinating hill when you consider its volcanic origins and attached legends. I went up the steep, but short, western side from the visitors centre, and its isolation guaranteed extensive views. It is worth calling in to the visitors centre, which was open but unattended, as there are good information boards about the formation of the hill. Great for a short walk - if it wasn't for the views and taking photographs, I probably could have been up and down in less than an hour. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/667/comment/17690/
