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 1437th highest place in Ireland. High Bank is the most northerly summit in the East Donegal area.

Unremarkable Hill But What A Noise!
by Aidy  2 Oct 2015
Apologies to Peter for virtually duplicating his photograph, but there is little else to shoot on this small rise. The views are pleasant enough to the eye but are all distant, with a large expanse of flat field in the foreground. It was even difficult to identfy as a hill when driving around looking for the track to the top. The most remarkable thing about my visit was the herds of cows in the field shown and the adjacent one. My presence triggered them all to start lowing and crowding round me - probably they thought I was coming to feed them. There were so many that the noise was incredible, and I expected an irate farmer to turn up to see what was annoying them! I beat a hasty retreat followed by the deafening sound and luckily got away unaccosted. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1327/comment/18341/
