The best thing about Douglas Top is definitely the view, so it is not too hard to see why it has remained uncommented until now. We combined this summit with a Sunday bike ride from Ballymena to Larne, which also took in Slemish. A good alternative would be to include it in a walk along the Antrim Hills Way, although the waymarked trail stops about 500m short of the summit. After leaving Slemish, we passed the Swine Craes, traditionally the scene of St. Patrick's captivity as a boy shepherd. We then had a long, hard climb by bike to the pass at Shillanavogy, where the road crosses the watershed from the Braid Valley to Glenwhirry. Leaving our bikes at the pass, we had just 1 km to walk to Douglas Top, and just 20 m of ascent. The Antrim Hills Way briefly leads west towards Douglas Top, before veering away to the north. A couple of fences have to be negotiated to reach the 402m spot height. Slemish dominates the view, but Lough Neagh, Slieve Gallion and the Sperrins were also visible. We visited another knoll to the SW which also just breaks the 400m contour and found that this opens up a view to the south, which includes the Belfast Hills, the Mournes and Slieve Gullion. Nearer at hand is Glenwhirry and the wind-farm at Elliot's Hill. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/818/comment/3136/
