Moorland & summit views
by TommyMc  30 Apr 2018
Visited Belmore Mountain on a mostly sunny day in April 2018. Followed Harry Goodman's 2010 instructions which still hold true. The first 1.2km or so on the rough stony track to reach the tin shed at H1281342327 starD was easy, while the remaining 1km or so over spongy and largely featureless moorland was more of a challenge, but overall not unpleasant.

I could find no remaining sign of the old wireless mast near the trig pillar. Upon reaching the summit, lovely views open up all around, particularly towards Lough Macnean, Cuilcagh and Benaughlin.

From Boho village proper, follow the signs for Boho Caves/Pollnagollum and stay on the road uphill at the caves, until you reach Harry's starting point near a farmhouse, at H1266342896 starB, where there is a parking space. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/843/comment/19911/
