A big warning before trying this route!!
by gerrym  18 Nov 2011
Starting from the entrance to the extensive windfarm on the hill (423972 A) with plenty of room for parking at this high desolate spot. A large sign warns of deep drainage with the risk of drowning, the risk of falling ice, buried high voltage cables and high crosswinds!! It did make me consider for a few seconds before bypassing the gates where a wire fence had been unceremoniously torn aside.

The broad access road reveals a 6 foot layer of peat at its side as it climbs steadily to reach the first turbines. A couple of offshoots to the left should be ignored and the track soon reaches the summit area (20 mins).

The summit itself is obvious off to the SE over wet and boggy ground crossed by fences. Views reach N over river Foyle, Lough Swilly to the Urris Hills, Ragtin More and Slieve Snaght, NW to Muckish and Errigal and down to the Bluestacks and Bessy Bell and E to the Sperrins draped in an autumnal coat.

It was a beautiful clear day with blue skies and a cool breeze. Lunch was taken sitting against an immobile turbine from within whose bowels something was trying repeatedly to crank up and start. The turbines did give the impression of being a bit old and delapitated, with some clanking and clunking and others having old graffiti at their base.

Return was the same way with great views over the lowlands of the Foyle valley, where isolated showers where dumping their rain and creating rainbows in the low lying sunlight.

A fairly isolated hill with the opportunity to combine it with others in the area to make a full day. Not another soul about so maybe that warning sign does its job. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/839/comment/6631/
