Short Summary created by JohnA, Peter Walker  8 May 2023
Edenacarnan hides in a tangle of land not far NW of Letterkenny, but stands sufficiently above it (and far enough away from more eminent eminences) to command extensive views over a large swathe of Donegal countryside.

It is easily and quickly (a matter of minutes) ascended from a minor road/track (driveable) across its northern side. Start at C14089 17669 starA and follow the rough access track to the radio kit on the summit, returning the same way. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1040/comment/5799/
