Back to the Iron Age

I have been to the summit here many times, but can't honestly claim to have climbed it, as there is a road which takes you practically right to the top, with a car park, and a wooden walkway for the few metres to the famous Grianan of Aileach fort. The fort on the summit is a restored iron age structure and would be worth the visit on its own. However, there are also great views in all directions over Donegal, Derry and Tyrone. The views were particularly good towards Inch Island and Inishowen. It would probably be possible to find routes to walk up the entire hill.
