A Small Gem In The Sperrins
by Aidy  15 Mar 2015
I was driving round this area of the Sperrins with my young son, looking for smaller hills to tackle as I am trying to pass on the hillwalking bug. We had already walked about halfway up Balix Hill, but the ground was hard going for him, and we gave it up. I stopped beside Farahs pub on the Sallowilly Road as it looked like a good spot to start up Crockdooish from the southern side. I was going to park in a layby a bit beyond the pub, but got chatting to the barman and a couple of customers outside, and they were very friendly, insisting I park in the pub car park, and assuring me it would be OK to go up the hill from there. After chatting for a few minutes, we took our leave, and took the short walk to the top. This was a much easier hill for a child, and a good introduction to hill walking. The views were magnificent, out of all proportion to its height, due to its proximity to the larger Sperrins. The only difficulty we had was the amount of fairly high barbed wire fences to be crossed. Great little hill if you're passing. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/930/comment/17880/
