slemish on Loughsalt Mountain, 2009
by slemish  31 May 2009
Having holidayed in this part of Donegal for many years I had always longed to climb the magnificent Loughsalt Mountain. Today in glorious weather I finally got the chance. I parked at a little lay-by on the road between Kilmacrenan and Glen, just to the north of the lough (129269) and proceeded up the mountain from there. Very steep indeed for much of the ascent. I found grabbing on to the deep heather was a useful support. Although it was only half ten in the morning it was very warm and the breeze was most welcome, which got stronger as I climbed. Loughsalt Mountain has three distinct summit areas. The central one is the highest reaching 469m and it's this summit that is marked by the trig pillar and a small cross. However the western summit commands the most spectacular views - especially the vertiginous sheer drop into Lough Salt itself. In fact, practically the whole of Donegal is laid out before your eyes - from Slieve Snaght in Inishowen, all the way round past Muckish and Errigal to the distant Blue Stacks. Even today with a slight haze in the air the views were incredible - on a crystal clear day they must be absolutely mind-blowing. I descended by the same route, taking care as there are extensive patches of scree on the way down and the last section really is frighteningly steep. Soon enough I was back at the car - mission accomplished! Total trip - about 1 hr. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/553/comment/3790/
