This hill is named High Bank on the 1st edition OS 6" map. It overlooks the village of Manorcunningham and the upper reaches of Lough Swilly and is situated in a townland of the same name (parish of Raymoghy), but the townland is spelt as a single word, Highbank. On later additions of the 6" map there is a small structure marked as "Bank" at the summit. Any information on this would be welcome.   High Bank is the 1444th highest place in Ireland.

Little to commend a visit !
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  29 May 2014
There is room to park off road at the start of a gated, muddy but well defined track C2564811873 starA which leads up to the top of the hill where there will be debate as to just where the high point lies. For purposes of this short summary the point recorded C2563112256 starB is on a raised stony ditch just to the right of the second metal gate some 400 metres along from the road. Although at first appearance it is covered by thick and prickly gorse and brambles the highest point can be accessed by crossing the fence on the left and into the adjoining field. When there, it is also worth crossing the second gate across the track and continuing on for another 200 metres to a standing stone where there is a fine view out across Lough Swilly to Inch Island and on to the greater hills and mountains of Inishowen. This said, there is little else to commend a walk to the top of this small hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1327/comment/15571/
