Short Summary created by Peter Walker  5 May 2014
Soldiers Hill is a somewhat squat eminence, but its location overlooking Inishowen's glorious western seaboard makes up for any (and indeed all) of its structural shortcomings.

Start from the viewpoint overlooking Five Finger Strand at (422537 A) where there is a spacious car park and a monument. Hop over the fence opposite and head up to the skyline. Various hummocks present themselves when the slope eases off; the highest is just before a fence and has a low cairn of white stones. The summit slopes are extensive and the best views (which are very, very good looking south) are obtained during the ascent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1323/comment/15567/
