Cuicagh is a bit of a ritual for me when over home. Can’t recall all the dates, so starting afresh. Most times I’ve approached from the Glan Valley, once from Bin along the Ulster Way and once from Gortaluhany. Twice we came along the ridge from the west. My favourite route is from the east along the rim edge. This time however with family and friends we made along the relatively new gravel road and bright board walk. It’s quite intrusive in this pristine landscape, and while it makes Cuilcagh more accessible, it is undoubtedly an eyesore. The footfall this easy route has created now brings erosion to the top of the mountain, which consequently temporarily “closed to walkers”. No irony in that. Anyway as a hill bagger one must always stay true to mission.Pete West03/06/2019
