If you have a look at the comment for Mullaghbolig you will find the information to get a good part of the way to this top. The crest of this line of hills roll like an elderly couple out for a Sunday drive so nothing too stressful. The ever present fence means the compass and map can stay safely tucked away. It may seem from this that the walk is not worth doing but nothing could be further from the truth. A light skiff of rain passed and the sky took on a sharper focus to the NW giving me a view of Errigal that was so sharp i literally held my hand out to touch it, the flat top of Muckish was clear as a Bessy Bell and the Aglhas in between. I still had all the Mournes and the Cooley mtns away to the SE. The variable light was adding to the different shades of vegeatation from valley to hilltop and overwhelming my optics with colour. It just felt great to be out on the hills with so much to see!
The top is a short and gentle climb with views down over the hamlet of Cranagh in the Glenelly valley. I was just able to still see Errigal with most of the Bluestacks in view including the deep gap of Struell. I just turned around a couple of times and there was something to see with every degree of movement.
There is a walk as long again to the high road crossing the hills through Glenlark forest. I was asking myself the question but i think the views had me by the short and curlies and i tramped on. I met a farmer on a quad and passed a few moments talking about the weather (what else!) and sheep (what else!) - he was gathering the sheep up for lambing. It took me 3 hours to reach the road following the fence all the way on pretty fair ground. If you like the sound of this one have a look at Spaltindoagh to square the circle so to speak. Trackback:
