A Broad Flattish Top
by Aidy  18 Mar 2016
I took the car up a passable but rough track off the Magherabrack Rd, parking at around H 53465 88507 H. As it turned out, after walking slightly west, I found myself on the much better Meenadoo Road, and as I continued west along it, I could have easily taken the car up it instead and parked a little closer to the point where I left the road for the hillside. I cut north, leaving the road around H 52825 88842 I, going through some coniferous trees to avoid walking through a farmyard even though the farmhouse itself wasn't being lived in. I continued in a general northwesterly direction to the top, although it was a meandering route due to boggy patches and awkward fences. As I got closer to the top the ground was hard going, with thigh deep tussocky grass and heather to wade through. The top itself is a broad flat area, making it hard to identify a highest point. Fairly decent views around the Sperrins, although the day had turned dark and gloomy with a flat light on my visit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/861/comment/18462/
