A tonic for the troops...

Inishowen...a salient land of salient wonders that somehow still remains relatively quiet. The coastline in particular is fantastic, with the huge cliffs somehow being exceeded in beauty by the sumptuous array of beaches. One of the very best of the latter is Five Fingers Strand north-west of Malin, a curve of sand and stones backed by towering dunes and the home of multi-tentacled extra-terrestrial nasties if the film 'Grabbers' is to be believed.

Lurking as a backdrop, above and to the right of the Fingers as one looks from the beach, is the lumpy eminence of Soldiers Hill. At (422537 A) is a viewpoint car park with a magnificent outlook south over the Strand. I went back to the road and crossed it, and hopped the fence easily with the aid of a few strips of wood placed for that purpose. With the top seemingly just a few hundred metres distant I deployed the time-honoured 'just go up' tactic, and a middling slope of stunted bracken and grass led to the skyline. Here the gradient eased off (unfortunately meaning I forfeited any depth to the view south) and entered an area of hummocks among which the highest point was obvious; there is a fence just beyond it and a few white stones had been grouped into a very minimalist cairn.

A round trip can be comfortably done in less than 15 minutes. Well worth the 'effort' if you're hereabouts. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1323/comment/16056/
