Started at Butlers Glen (358468 A) which has off road parking and other facilities. A lovely walk up through the glen crosses the river a number of times with the sound of burbling water as a constant. An army of ferns were pushing their way skyward in the late spring sunshine which only reached part of the deep sided glen. Views down the glen reach to BInnion Hill and Tullagh Bay on the coast. Rounding a bend the spectacular waterfall comes into view. Climb steeply out of the glen to the left - would be a nightmare in the wet!
Join a track heading further up the valley for a short distance before dropping down (again steeply) to cross the river. Open hillside leads to the objective of Raghtin Beg ahead. The ground was spongy and would be very wet normally - was a bit of a slog to be honest. I did see a frog and a newt - a bat would have completed a perfect recipe for Shakespeares witches.
Clouds were forming off the sea in the E wind leading to overcast and windy conditions on top of Raghtin Beg whilst the surrounding coastline bathed in sunshine. Views to the double horseshoe bays northward were spectacular. A short but steep final climb brings the top of Raghtin More. There is a massive cairn with other lesser effortsdotted about. Views to tthe E are taken up by the height of Slieve Snaght and Crockmain. To the W Lough Swilly with Fanad lighthouse at its head is in view. As move across the top the spectacular line of rugged tops heading S take the breath away, along with the never ending reaches of L Swilly with its occasional golden beaches.
It would be very difficult to just visit this hill and we continued over Crockmain and Mamore Hill, returning to Butlers Glen by the track which follows the Camowen river (323423 B). Great days walking and there was no one else on a bank holiday Sunday! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/451/comment/967/
