simon3 on Gregory Hill, 2010

This hill is around 7km east of Letterkenny. Unless someone knows a better way up, I think it is strictly for list tickers. Ticks, ah yes we'll come to that.

There may be other ways up via the forest to the east of the top, however we started from a point on the road at C1155512969 A. One way is to go 135m west to a very rough track going southish. However the track is so bad it may be easier simply to pick a path across the rough ground straight for the summit which is only around 540 metres from the road. The ground is extremely unpleasant with high heather, squishy and undrained underfoot and very tiring.

Which brings me to ticks. Despite wearing long trousers and long sleeves two of us got ticks. This is never pleasant however there is the additional risk of Lymes disease, made more likely by the presence of animals such as a herd of goats near the top. Wear long clothes and check yourself carefully after doing this summit. You've been warned. (If you do think you've been infected, get treatment within 72 hours to avoid the nasty incurable side-effects.)

The summit has one of those ground level trig markers that the OSI sometimes used. The view is pretty good in a number of directions. There is a vista of wind turbines to the south of which those shown in the posterised picture are only a small selection, reminding us that Donegal currently has the second largest number of windfarms in the Republic.
