One of the first times I can remember being impressed by the beauty of the Antrim hills was on a school field trip to the Quolie reservoirs many years ago. I had never been back since so I followed gerrym's route to take in both the reservoirs and the summit of Carncormick. It was another beautiful spring afternoon as I headed up Quolie Lane towards Reservoir 1. There is space to park at the gate without blocking it. The initial stages were easy over sheep-cropped fields. The imaginatively-titled Reservoir 2 soon comes into view. As you ascend the ground becomes more boggy with the odd peat hag although nothing as bad as Trostan or Slievenanee. It must be a mile to the summit at least as this part seems to go on for ages. Care should be taken as the deep heather hides the many small burns which cross the slope. A misplaced foot into one of these can easily result in an ankle sprain or worse so keep your eyes peeled. Eventually you reach the trig pillar on the summit at 436m. The flush bracket and spider in particular were in very good condition. Today was fine and very warm for early April but quite hazy. This meant there was no chance of the longer views to the Sperrins and Scotland. However there were still fine views to be had: east to Mid Hill and the gaping Glenariff, south over the Braid valley to Slemish and Agnew's Hill and north to Glenravel with the village of Cargan hugging the slopes of Slievenanee with Trostan and Slieveanorra to either side. I completed the walk by descending to the south back to Quolie Lane. Took longer than I expected but a beautiful and peaceful walk. Total trip about 2 hrs. Trackback:
