Gortmonly is a townland in Donaghedy parish. Gortmonly Hill is also known as Dullerton Mountain or Sollus, names derived from other townlands on its slopes. No Irish name is now known for it, but it is possible that the one or both of the names Dowletter mountayne and Mullaghnegerry, which occur in the Civil Survey of ca. 1655, refer to this hill.   Gortmonly Hill is the 1356th highest place in Ireland.

Electrifying Experience
by Aidy  29 Jan 2015
Having already been up Curraghchosaly, I planned to do a few more smaller hills in West Tyrone and Derry, starting here. Walked up the concrete road described in the other comments, in snow, hail and strong winds. There was a shooting party, after woodcock, on the side of the hill, but they assured me I would neither be interfering with their pursuits, nor be in danger of being shot! Great views at the top towards Slievekirk, and down over the Foyle. Just as I was about to leave, a really bad storm came in, with horizontal hail and vicious wind. it got incredibly dark, but suddenly everything lit up blue with a flash of lightning and a simultaneous thunderclap. The strike must have been very close, and in such an exposed spot, I was very lucky. I wouldn't have thought it was possible to get down an ice and snow covered concrete road so quickly, but it turns out it is! I also decided that was enough hills for one day.
