Harry Goodman on Cnoc Fola, 2009
by Harry Goodman  28 Sep 2009
I started my walk at the viewpoint shown on the OSI Sheet 1 1:50,000 scale at B 816322 D. I climbed up the long ridge east over Pt. 217 to the stoney top of the hill at 314m. This modest height commands the most westerly high point listed by MV for the Donegal NW mainland. There are fine views to the N and E of Tory Island, Inishbofin and the long fine sandy beach of the Dooey Penninsula near Magheraroarty. The top of the hill is strewn with a motley collection of small stone cairns and other "decorative" work !(see photo). Rather than simply go back the way I came up I opted to continue NE downhill to the R257 where I continued along the road to my arranged pick up point at Glassercoo. In all a short, easy but satisfying ramble. If in the area to climb Cnoc Fola I would also commend a visit to and walk around the nearby Dooey Penninsula. The sand dunes at the north end are magnificent and are easily the most dramatic I have come across in Ireland. The two walks combined make a very satisfying day out.
