.......access issue.

Further to the access point referred to by jackill and thomas_g (W 10378 51710 A) I intended using this as a starting point for a loop walk including all three Nowens, the two Maughanaclea hills and Mullaghmesha. I was parked at the above location and just about to start my walk when I was intercepted by the owner who told me in no uncertain terms that I was not to enter her land. The gate at the vehicle access track has a padlock on it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/824/comment/15000/

Park at W10378 51710 A a gated track entrance, room for 2 cars (just) and follow the track up the hill, keeping right at a fork. This track will lead to a small gate at W11081 51903 B which is tied with about 15 knots and will take about 10 minutes to untie - save yourself some time and climb the hinge. This gate gives access to open mountain: Nowen Hill Far West is more or less directly opposite. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/824/comment/14718/
