Worth seeking out.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  26 Mar 2015
Start at H6826188284 A and follow a track up until it peters out in a thick patch of rushes and old turf cuttingd H6790588743 B. Continue up the untracked hillside to a wooden gate H6754588927 C about 1km into the walk. Once across the gate follow the fence line up to its high point at a junction with another fence H6703889286 D. Go left and walk out across the the flat top the the high point some 160 metres along. Just which heather covered clump of peat in the swampy ground signifies the top will be a matter of personal choice. Views N to the High Sperrins are superb while to the E across the N shoulder of Slieve Gallion the distant Antrim hills can be seen. Up and back 4km.
