With a dreicht day in the offing, a short walk with some shelter was called for & Loughermore was the answer.

After parking the car in the forestry carpark, marked on the map, at 584126 A, we surveyed the scene (warning climbing onto hobby horse!), it appears several people had confused the sign carpark for that of one of local dump. Litter of various types including condoms, tins of beer, bottles of wine and general takeaway detritus was strewn all around. One wonders what type of visitors / tourists would be enticed to stop in such a place, if any were still around, that is, and had not returned home, after finding the quality waymarked way they came to walk, was in fact a busy road.(rant over)

Anyway back to the walk, a short walk down the road to the junction with the Slaghtmanus road (there is a track shown on the map, which cuts a bit of the road walking out, but there was 2 unfriendly looking dogs there on our visit), turn left along the Slaghtmanus road to the track beside a house at 583129 B. Follow this track, over a locked gate (beside a static caravan) into the forest.

This is one of those rare times when the tracks on the map actually match those in the forestry, so need for a detail description to reach the summit. On arrival at the trig point, which is on the right hand side of the track, the ground on the left looks slightly higher, but this is not what holds your eyes. The view out over Lough Foyle to the Inishowen hills then round to Binevenagh & the northern sperrins is quite superb, its one to keep for a crisp cold winters day, when the view would be further enhanced. For us though, we could see the darkening clouds & rain heading towards us, so it was time for a quick return to the carpark, with its litter.
