The two MV'ers who have previously commented on Moneyoran Hill both approached the hill from the south so in order to provide a bit of variety I decided to tackle it from the opposite direction. I parked at a small layby at the end of the Curraghmore Road, a minor track off the Drumbane Road out of Swatragh (803095 K). From here you follow the fence SW past a small forestry patch not shown on the OS map. You need to cross a few gates and barbed wire fences and a small brook to first get onto the slope of Pollangorm Hill. Head for the grassy gap between the dense heather that runs up this hill and once over the crest of Pollangorm Hill the 414m summit of Moneyoran Hill can be seen dead ahead. The whole area is terribly boggy and the deep heather made the going tough. As Harry Goodman notes the summit of Moneyoran Hill is very flat with no obvious mark such as a cairn. There were dark clouds coming in from the west as I reached the summit so I paused only for a quick snap of the only decent view available - NE to the whole expanse of the Antrim Plateau - Trostan and Slievenanee particularly prominent. Carntogher and the high ridge towards Carn Hill block most of the view to the rest of the Sperrins. I quickly left the summit area but alas heavy rain came on when I was still only halfway back to the car - I was very fed up by this point as I had no waterproof jacket on as otherwise it had been a dry day. I would not recommend this hill unless like me you were ticking it off. Nearby Carntogher offers better views and a firmer climb. Total trip - about one hour. Trackback:
