I used an access track to reach the masts at the top of Ballaghmore. An uneventful walk except for a bird of prey circling overhead. Either it saw something in the fields on either side of me or it thought I wouldn't make the 850m stroll up the track! Summit area is disappointing due to the presence of the mast but the high point of the hill is in the field next to it. I actually did this walk 2 years ago but highly enjoyed reading eamonoc's recent account of his boyhood walks here with his faithful doggy friend Schooner.
