Cloudberries are found on the western slopes. This rare alpine plant resembles the strawberry plant, to which it is related. The fruit are like orange pearls. The OS Memoirs derive the name from Ir. dart, 'a lump', explaining that When viewed at a distance, it looks like a a lump on Sawel. However, Daigart is the name of a district mentioned by Tírechán in the Tripartite Life. O'Ceallaigh reviewed this information, along with MacNeill's assessment of it, and concluded that Daighart was probably the mountain country of Gleann Fhoichle (Glenelly), in the parish of Both Domhnaigh (Bodoney) and at the bottom of Samhail (Sawel) (Gleanings from Ulster History, Séamus Ó Ceallaigh, p. 23).   Dart Mountain is the 255th highest summit in Ireland.

Easy summit in the shadow of Sawel.
Short Summary created by simon3,  13 Sep 2010
The obvious way to climb Dart is from the road at H5894 9691 A, where there is a limited amount of parking. This point is at around 438m on the crest of a road that goes across the Sperrins. The walk to Dart is around 1.4k over rough heather and coarse grass.
Another way to reach Dart is from Sawel which is nearly 2k to the east.
The northern side of Dart has some crags. Views from the summit are substantial though Sawel is in the way to the east.
Dart has a cairn on the summit Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/244/comment/5004/
