Picture: Steel structures on Mullaghturk
Strange sightings on the Mullagh!
by gerrym  11 Jul 2010
Starting point is just west of Bealnamala Bridge (694891 E) where there is room to park several cars.

Walk to bridge and drop down to Moyola river, following the stream coming down along side of forest. Foxgloves and thistles were vying for my attention here with vivid colours. The stream carves out a gully which has a lovely waterfall about 20ft high. Views start to stretch out along the Moyola river valley, past S Gallion to Slemish in the distance. Everytime i stopped on the ascent something new came into focus - the jagged outline of the Mournes, Lough Neagh and Culcaigh.

As the forest ends a track can be picked up (684896 F) which runs along the top of the treeline. Several steel structures which look like mine entrances are present here - what they really are i do not know? Continued uphill past a small communications mast and was greeted by the strange sight of the flatbed of a lorry in the middle of the hill? I was beginning to get a little paranoid now - was there someone watching me??

The long broad top is soon reached - this eastern top being 4m lower than the western top which is a good slog on fairly wet ground following the fence. There was some nice colour on the hill as yellow and purple flowers bloomed and i now had views N to Carnanelly, the tops of Sawel and Dart and the Mullaghs stretching westward. Divis Mtn appeared shly from behind S Gallion and i now had a nice line of hills from Donard to Slieve Foye to the south on a day with clear air.

Dropped down south from the top following the stream all the way to Altbane Bridge and then a 15 minute walk back along the road to the car, taking just over two hours with a lunch stop. Enjoyable walk with some good views and interesting diversions! Linkback:
