This walk starts from the SE side of the hill. Take the road to the Quolie resevoirs, using the parking space for several cars before the gate (174114 A). Follow the track alongside the Quolie river, firstly with pasture hemmed in by stone walls containing cows, sheep and horses as company, but then further into the rough moorland of the surrounding hills. The water of the river is brown from the peat covered hills and soon glimpse the bank of grass holding back a great volume of it at Quolie resevoir 1. Cross the grass bank and a bridge over the water outlet, which cascades down a glittering stairway. A raised trackway follows the river on one side and the resevoir on the other, I wore my temporary shepard hat here as a group of sheep hurried along in front with no escape.
Occasionally fish would perform ballet in the air above the waters of the resevoir as i walked. An iron girder provides a crossing point over the river onto the hillside, as climb the second higher resevoir comes into view. A few fish jumping here would have been welcome to reduce the cleg popualtion which had great joy in biting through my light fleece. The ground is good for a while but soon turns to deep tussocky heather where every footstep is an accident waiting to happen - this goes on for ages as walk NW before reaching the sensibler ground at the trig pillar.
It was a good day and the views were similar, all the bigger hills to the N (Trostan, Slivenanee etc), the Sperrins from the N coast down and most impressively into the gaping valley of Glenariff which had a swathe of low cloud reaching up to its brim. Absolutely beautiful views in all directions as puffy cumulus dotted a blue sky. Butterflies and bees kept me company as i sat and drank in the views and my lunch.
Continued on to Mid Hill following the fenceline and returned back down to Quolie resevoir 2, following the track easily back to where i had parked. I think there is no doubt that it does pay to explore the lower hills - new experinences and challenges are an important part of walking as well as going back to the trusted and well worn paths of the likes of the Mournes.
