I climbed Slievenahanaghan' as part of a round which had earlier included Skerry Hill, approaching it from the SE across rough moorland of knee high gorse and clumps of tussocky grass. On my way I came across an access road not marked on the OSNI maps which would be of considerable help to anyone looking for a less torturous approach to the hill. The entrance gate is at D 13269 21727 A. I should add that there is a warning sign at the gate advising that you are entering a "hard hat site" and another states that there is "no unauthorised entry" However on my way down from the hill, before I was aware of the signs, I was approached by the driver of one of the site vans but his only interest was about my walk and not to warn me off the site. I suspect that no one will object to a walker using this track to access the hill at her/his own risk but if in doubt permission could be sought at the site office located about 1k in from the public road. I climbed the hill directly by keeping to the right side of the wind turbines. There is nothing to mark the top. Indeed the high point is on a large flat area levelled out to facilitate work when building the wind farm. Gerrym may be interested to know that since he filed his comments on 07-11-10 the number of turbines has increased from 11 to at least 18. Indeed the hill could well be re-named the "Birthday Cake" with its liberal covering of white "candles" !! From the top I dropped down SE past the turbines to the access road where I turned left and followed it out to the public road. From there I turned right and had a short walk along the road to my starting point for the round at D 14285 21327 C (see also my comments on Skerry Hill) Linkback:
