A classic route to bag the five summits which encircle Glenshane Forest, starting and ending at the Ponderosa. A bit tough-going in places, but nice walking overall, apart from the two bits along the busy A6. Most of Corick Mountain had traces of recent fires as of February 2019. I made a detour to an unusual, apparently recent cairn on the NW of Mullaghmore, only a couple of hundred metres from the road. Worth the detour as the cairn stands along some surprisingly steep, rocky slopes and offers great views. After reaching the summit of Mullaghmore, I stuck to the cliffs' edge, which, along with offering more spectacular views, allowed for easy walking as it enabled me to avoid most of the peats hags between Mullaghmore and Bohilbreaga. The cliffs E of the latter were also a nice surprise. I then nearly sank into a swamp at the col before Coolnasillagh Mountain. Despite the numerous fences which I had to cross, there was an unexpected feeling of wilderness and remoteness during most of this walk, and I even spotted a couple of red grouse between White Mountain and Mullaghmore. The only deception was the horrible traces of human presence spoiling the tops of Mullaghmore and Coolnasillagh.
