An easy way up !
by Harry Goodman  13 Mar 2012 Although Inch Top is the lowest and one of the first encountered of the Inishowen mv listed hills I kept missing it out having read the posts of others. These described the route up, inter alia, as one with "a jungle section.....a few minutes of acute discomfort..... an abundace of chest high ferns and whin bushes......and a route to commend heartily to one's worst enemy......". This said, when it was the last remaining top on my Inishowen mv list, the day of reckoning could be put off no longer. On 5 March 2012, with little enthusiasm, I decided that the time had come to tackle this small hill. However, once there I sought out some local knowledge to see if an alternative and less torturous way to the top could be found. I was advised that there was an access track up to a mast on the summit and that I should not have any problem seeking permission to use it. From a crossroads at C3235425146 (Point S) I followed a minor road SW for a short distance to a small white cottage C3220624936 (Point T), near some large work sheds. On asking at the house if I could use the access track to go up the hill permission was readily given and I was advised that there would be no problem if other walkers wanted to do the same. This said permission to park and use the track should be sought. After a short walk on tarmac up past the sheds the start of the untarred stoney track was at C3205724955. This led up through some trees to open ground at C3154025439 (Point U) where it turned sharply left and up to the mast, trig pillar and adjacent cairn. The top C3134825280 is a magnificent view point with a 360 degree panorama. To the E and S is Scalp Mt. and the ancient hill top site of the Grianan of Aileach, Holywell Hill and the distant Sperrins. To the W and N are the Donegal Highland's and NE the Urris Hills, Raghtin More, Bulbin and Slieve Snaght. This is a climb that can be completed comfortably in less than an hour even allowing for a break on the top to sit and enjoy the scenery. Distance up and down is 3k.
