Donald's Hill is the most easterly in the Keenaght area.

Donalds Hill is the nearest mountain to my home ,as i write this I can see it's snow covered summit from my living room.Donalds Hill is best climbed from Gortnarney Road,from Drumsurn village travel towards Dungiven before taking first left at Kilhoyle Road,after a 1/2 mile take another left onto Gortnarney Road and continue for 1/4 mile until a sign for Ulster way appears.Cross stile on right and follow a visible farm track to ruins of limestone works,continue on the track which leads to one of largest and best preserved Raths in Ulster known as the Kings Fort.Superb views of the Roe Valley ,Sperrins,Foyle Basin and Donegal Hills are visible from the Rath.To reach the summit it is best to retrace your steps from the Rath a few hundred yards before heading upwards as this avoids a few steeper areas,once the summit is reached it is possible to return by the same route or head towards the Broadband Mast and then down remembering to keep right to avoid steeper ground.A nice hill to climb which can be done up and down in just over an hour............
