A simple but rewarding ascent.
Short Summary created by simon3, Harry Goodman  9 Oct 2014
The road to Inch Island is signed from the R238 between Burnfoot and Buncrana at C361 246 A where a turn W leads down to and across the causeway onto the island. At a T junction C333 248 B turn right and follow along to a X roads at C324 251 C. Go SW a short way to a small white cottage on the right C322 249 D near some large work sheds. The start of an untarred stoney track giving access to the summit is at C3205724955 E just past the sheds. This leads up, initially through trees, and then over more open ground to the top with it's communications mast, trig pillar and adjacent cairn. For such a small hill the summit is a magnificent view point with a full 360 degree panorama of the Donegal hills and mountains and even further afield to the Sperrins. This is a climb that can be completed very comfortably in less than an hour even allowing time on top to enjoy the scenery. Total distance up and down is 3k. Permission to use the track up should be sought at the cottage, permission which was very readily given to the writer on the occasion of his climb (March 2012).
