Picture: Summit cairn
 
Simple ascent, mostly on roads.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  27 May 2019
Take the ferry across from Burtonport. Whether driving or walking, take the road to the west that eventually finishes at Arranmore Lighthouse (signposted Teach Solais). At Point B 665 169 starA, (beside a power/communications building) turn left for about 500m. The road eventually turns into a track and you will have to leave a car behind. Follow the curving track around Cluadaniller to the SW for a couple of hundred metres and Cluadaniller West Top will be directly in front of you, about 400m to the SW. It is a gentle climb across mostly patchy heather. The summit is marked by a well-made cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1023/comment/5782/
