No great challenge but a worthy Binnion nonetheless .

I visited this top on 26 July 2014. Take the R255 W off the N56 at C119221 A and follow along to take a minor road on the left C110223 B going SSE. About 2k along go right SW along the Braughan Road to C101201 C. Take the minor road on the right and follow it up NNW to C0984820421 D just past a large shed on the left. Before going down left and around to a parking place at C0976920371 Eask permission to do so at the nearby farmhouse as this part of the road has been extended by the local farmers to improve their access to the land above. From the parking place the tarmac continues along for a further 300m before it becomes a rough stone and clay track which ends on the hillside at C0954820586 F. From this point the top lies a further 300m along to the NW up a good grassy slope with some patches of short heather broken only by a few small rocks near the high point. The top lies unmarked within a small relatively flat ring contour. The views are extensive with a full 365 degree sweep covering many of the tops in NW Donegal, the Bluestacks , the more distant Sperrins, with the prominent ouline of the Sawel/ Dart ridge clearly visable and further around the hills of Inishowen. Although this is a hill that can be easily climbed up and back in less than 30 minutes, be sure to take time when there to simply enjoy the views on offer. A worthy Binnion that can be included with a number of other nearby stand alone tops in the area or simply included as a side trip when visiting the higher tops of the Derryveagh/Glendowan mountains.
