First time up this country and what a treat. The forecast was good and I thought I'd get some smashing photos but it wasn't to be as that low hanging cloud just lingered and there were a few light showers. I was in awe of the wild and tough walking terrain. Make no mistake, you'd know you'd had a decent walk when you get off the hill. No tracks up here, bar a few sheep ones, so you just walk it as you see it.
I could tell that the beauty of the mountains themselves were hidden on the day, because of the weather, but they looked fantastic and worth another visit on a beter day. Theres a bit of a scramble between Corrannabinna SW and Corranabinnia itself but it only added to the walk.
NB: I descended from Tirkslieve by following the fence down to F963 028 but there was a 'No Entry' sign on the other side of the gate where the hill meets the road. So, Id suggest heading to the foot bridge at F948 024 as an alternative.
