Timber!

I took a different, slightly shorter (although I suspect rather similar in character) route through the forests that drape the southern slopes of Loughermore. It's possible to park just SW of the road junction on the minor road on the E slopes at (602 148 starN); the forest road indicated on the map heading NW from here is easily traced on the ground once one has negotiated the two piles of earth placed here to make it inaccessible to vehicles.

The pedestrian should turn right at (599 151 starO) and then right again at (588 154 starP); arrival at the summit (which is indeed on the other side of the road from the trig point, a couple of hundred metres after leaving the forest) is inevitable. As previously noted, the view over Lough Foyle is very fine from here. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/845/comment/6379/
