Driving through the lonely mountain roads I was surprised to come across a veritable carpark of vehicles near to Slieveanorra Forest. I then remembered that the Glens of Antrim rally was sceduled for this weekend. I took an hour to spectate and listen to the tortured sounds of engines and the staccato fire from exhausts, reverberating like shotguns and machineguns through the forest, like a full blown battle.
Parking at service road for Altnahinch Dam (117235 B), can also park at dam itself but a sign says 'anglers only'. From here walk left to the nearby road junction and head onto open ground, crossing a Burn which disappears under the road through a stone arch. The hill is straight ahead, with a gaggle of wind turbines adding to its height. Ground is pretty good but wet and soft in places. As walk further uphill views back over the beautifully framed resevoir dominate. A couple of fences and some deep heather near the top bring the summit after a half hour.
The top is long and broad and eleven wind turbines where busily slicing thickly through the air, like the engines on a massive airship that was about to lift off. Despite the calm, the movement of so many large wind turbine blades through the air made it sound as if a gale was blowing. There are good views from the top - to the N a line of 500m + rounded hills from Knocklayd to Slieveanee. To the W the long line of the Sperrins were just visible through the murk. It took me 15 minutes to dander along the service track between the turbines before dropping off the SE side of the hill.
A large tracked vehicle has flattened the heather here to reach an almost invisible radio mast (some scientific purpose perhaps given the numerous white plastic poles in the surrounding ground?). The occasional noise of the rally cars was the only intrusion, apart from the few birds i disturbed. I followed a small stream downhill before climbing gradually up towards Skerry Hill (459m). Cattle were grazing on the lower slopes and thier presence was evident amongst the rough ground on the way to the summit. A small cairn covered in moss showed the top and I followed a fence along and down to the N for a while,continuing N when it turned. A drop brings the road and a walk of a half hour back to the car. It was dark now and the rally cars were having thier final run up and through the sprawl of forest.
Something different than the usual higher hills but interesting. The day showed the variety of uses that the heights can be put to and the different activites that can be accomodated in our upland. Trackback:
