(see Mullaghbolig for the start of this walk)

From Barnes Gap the Central Sperrins Way traverses the south flank of Mullaghbane, past a couple of old style, and increasingly rare vernacular farm buildings to a stile on your right at 535885 C (no sign). Cross this and follow the track up hill, which fades out before you reach a fence on the crest of the hill, there will be a fence junction to your left with a stile at 535894 E . Cross the stile and follow the fence to the summit of Cragnamaddy, which in true Sperrins style was a bit rounded & soft.

After the earlier hills being mist bound, it was good to have views from the last hill of the day, with all the higher hills being topped with snow and a good golden sunset lighting up the hills all around. West of the summit at 521895 F, a track (not obvious at first) leads down hill (north east) to the Central Sperrins Way, however, new wire fences, topped with barbed wire have been erected right across this track. You may wish to cross the fence north of the summit and descend north, to try and pick up the track and hopefully avoid the wire fencing as well.

Once on the Central Sperrins Way turn left and walk down the improving track with one more stile (on your left) as track becomes tarmac to a road junction at 520903 G, turn right down a lane to the Landahussy road, turning right here for the last 3km back to the car park. Giving a walk of around 13.3 miles.

Alas, in search of a pint of Guinness to round the day off, we stopped at the pub in Cranagh only to find it closed, perhaps the locals were taking the vows at Toberanna seriously. So we sped off home to enjoy several bottles of Dorothy Goodbody's Wholesome Stout, a tasty end to the day indeed. Trackback:
