What a fine little hill! North Donegal and Inishowen seems to be blessed with more than its fair share of gems like this.

After asking around locally for a place to park, we were directed to the small harbour mentioned by Harry Goodman in his post. The lane way down to the harbour at C323487 D is tight with only one place to pass another vehicle, and with the local farmers using the harbour, it would be wise to check that the way ahead was clear before turning down into the lane.

There is room to park a car or maybe two and leave plenty of space for others using the harbour. When we were there, a couple of weeks ago, there was an old boat that had been hauled up into the parking / turning area, cutting the space down for parking.

From the harbour walk along the beach for a short distance, and then take to the hillside where there is a gap in the fence. A faint path follows the edge of the cliffs up hill, past, well down then up out of a sharp re-entrant, from the edge of the cliff there is a good view of a sea stack, which may tempt some adventurous sea kayaking climbers to its very own Eiger like sea-face.

There are two 230 metre ring contours, vying for summit status. Both have cairns and great views from them, but it was only when we were back at the car did I notice the satmap gps had recored the first top as being 237 metres. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1021/comment/5882/
