small ridge with big views
by slemish  17 Jul 2011
This curious little ridge in Donegal seems to suffer from an identity crisis. MountainViews calls it Edenacarnan, Google Maps calls it Cloghroe whilst another map site calls it Legnahoory. Whatever the correct name is, this is a great little hill with fine views in all directions. I turned off the N56 between Kilmacrenan and Letterkenny onto a minor road signposted Cashelgay. Follow this road for about a mile until you reach a T-junction. Turn left here and follow the road for a further quarter of a mile until you come to a gate about 100m before a barn. There is room for one vehicle to park here on the left of the road (142171 B). Cross the road and climb over the gate into the field behind. This is where a short climb starts which is fairly steep through cropped grass and I was certainly feeling the heat on one of the best days I've ever experienced in Donegal. At the top of this field you can see the summit area clearly and there are two barbed wire fences to cross before reaching it. The summit area contains a communications mast and other electrical equipment in a little fenced-off area. This doesn't detract from the views however which are excellent considering the hill is only 192m high. A wonderful panorama from the Sperrins round to the Bluestacks, the Derryveaghs and out over the Fanad and Inishowen peninsulas - the Urris Hills were particularly prominent (see photo). I returned by the same route to the car. An easy and worthwhile climb - this one can be done in 20 minutes so check it out if in the area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1040/comment/6413/
