Although listed by MV as Dunaff Hill this small height is also a headland and this is what gives it character. A good vantage point to see it is from the viewpoint and car park at the Gap of Mamore C 318442 A. Starting at C325486 B I walked down to and along the beach past a small harbour. From here I climbed NW around the the cliff edge of the headland followed it around before turning S to walk over several cairned tops including the high point at a princely 230m ! The beauty of this walk is that it is a strollers hill which allows lots of time to look around and take in the scenery which is in abundance. To the NE is Ireland's most northerly point at Malin Head, while to the SE is the line of hills from Raghtin More to the Urris Ridge. Directly E across the sands at Tullagh Bay is tiny Binnion another low but worthwhile climb. Once across the high point I headed down S to cross a small stream and then turned ESE to pick up a lane at C303475 C which I followed out to the road where a left turn and 1.7k took me back to my start point after a leisurely 2 hours. I combined this walk with a walk up nearby Bulbin earlier in the day and together they gave me a very satisfactory day out.
