Next Walk

Saturday 7 December  –  Slieve Beagh, Co Tyrone, Monaghan & Fermanagh     Grade B     OS 18 

Saturday’s walk is in the Slieve Beagh area.  In past years we have twice climbed this small in height mountain in a circle from the south west.  This time the idea was to climb in a totally new way, in a triangle from the east.  After two recce’s, the first was abandoned due to weather conditions and the second took five hours with shortest lunch break ever to do seven miles .

The area is described as a vast oasis of emptiness.  It is very wet and gaiters, poles etc are a must.  We will start at GR 563 431

We have a number of options depending on conditions but we won’t be doing the route of our actual recce.  From past walks we know we can shorten route missing out most treacherous section or do an A to B along parts of the Slieve Beagh way and Tra.  Walk will finish at Slieve Beagh Hotel.
