Carncormick is a hill only to be appreciated in good weather. The views can be anywhere between great and awful depending on the weather. By this I mean on a sunny day it is worth it and even on a dull day with a high cloud base the view can be colourless and dull. The best route is to start from Martinstown on the A43 and take the minor road which leads you to a junction between Islandnabracky and Knocknagully.Take a right then a quick left and follow this to the very end. This leads to a country track that will take you to Carncormick's South-Western slopes. When the track splits in two take the left and then just pick your way up the slopes to the cairn. When you arrive you will understand my earlier comments about the views. On this walk you could also include Mid Hill and Collin Top. Simply just follow the North-East ridge through the Red Sea. To complete the route (sorry about the road walking) head for the track on the Northern side of Dungonnell Dam and take left. This is a now a pleasant stroll downhill past Craignamaddy and Cargan Rock. (do these also if you have the time) When you come to the junction near Ballsallagh Bridge take right, then a left at the main road to take you back to Martinstown and your car. A great route which can very peaceful! Trackback:
