Short Summary created by Peter Walker,  27 Jan 2014
There is precious little point in complicating Donalds Carn. Turn off the B90 north up Island Magee at (467971 A) up the Gransha Braes road. In about 800m (475972 B) you will meet a crossroads; go straight over it, and at the T-Junction at (479974 C) turn right.

Find somewhere to park close to the aerials conspicuous on the right hand side of the road after 300m or so, and then exercise your judgement by deciding which of various candidates on either side of the tarmac is the highest point. There's a chance it might be a patch of grass in the aerial's enclosure (which would be unfortunate, given that there's no obvious way in if the gate is shut), but it seems more likely to be one of the low embankments either side of two ditches running east from the road.

If you climb over the fence in this direction and wander down the field you'll eventually get a nice coastal view, but there's little else of interest hereabouts. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1357/comment/15601/

Just exactly where, or what, is Donald's Carn ?
by Harry Goodman  18 Apr 2014
I fully concur with the comments of Peter Walker in his short summary for this hill, both in the directions given and as to the general whereabouts of the top. The highest point lies somewhere within the small 140m ring contour of fairly level ground broken only by a number of raised ditches. My best guess would be a point at J4806397115 D along the ditch running E off the road and along the S edge of a flat cultivated field . On inspection I found that the currently listed mv co-ordinates J481972 E lie within the bounds of this field but, if anything, at a point where the field starts to slope down E and not at the highest point. This said Donald's Carn is a non-descript hill with nothing to commend a visit unless,as in my case, to complete one of the outstanding hills in the new Local 100 list introduced by mv'v in January 2014. By the way a farmer who I met when I there was not aware of Donald's Carn as a name used locally. It may well be that it has some historical significance, now long forgotten.
