A small hill with a fine panorama
by Harry Goodman  27 Jun 2019
On a journey to the NW I took the opportunity on 18 May 2010 to visit this hill. I turned left off the A6 where it is crossed by the B69 and signed for Claudy. After driving through the village I followed the B49 signed for Donemanna (Cumber Road) and followed it along to a crossroads at C5315004950 starA where I turned left onto the Sallowilly Road for approx 700m and then right up a tarmac minor road C5382503750 starB. The start of the walk is 700m along this lane where the tarmac gives way to a gravel farm track C5336603310 starC, the same spot located by three5four0. IFrom here I walked up this track to an old farm C5303302825 starD and then turned left onto a wide hedge lined grassy track up past a small tree plantation. Where the plantation ended C5289502631 starE I turned left uphill across several fences to the flat summit area. Once again in the Sperrins I was on a hill with no distinguishing feature indicating the high point so I just strolled around to try and decide where it lay. Although it was a hazy day I none the less enjoyed the atmospheric panorama around me of the Sperrins and their layered ridges. I returned by way of ascent . A short walk up and down of 2.5km easily done at strollers pace in 45 minutes and well worth the effort if passing through this area with an hour to spare.
