Ballynalacken Hill will be easily and all too readily written off as a brief stop on the way elsewhere. Despite its excellent views west it may appear to have little else to recommend it. An old ruin and a large metal tank as well as some piping in the ground adorn the summit field. The summit itself is merely a minute or two from the road. A peak-baggers dream one would think. But I am not a peak-bagger. I am a summitteer. The difference between the two can be clearly illustrated in my visit to this hill. Follow my gps track to where I wandered a few hundred metres to the south east of the summit. A curious small hillock caught my eye. If you explore this small hill enough, persevere enough and duck, dive and clamber enough you will find what I found. Hidden history not marked on any map. Perhaps the faint echoes of my walk, driven by some instinct, will remain. If not you will have to manage on your own. What is there is not overwhelming, but it's still exciting, especially as it's not marked on the map. A reward for the intrepid explorer who chooses to believe every hill has a tale.
