Droim an Bhothaigh / Drumavohy is the name of a townland in the parish of Clondavaddog. We are not aware of a specific name for this hill, but as the townland name refers to a hill, it also seems suitable as a name for this peak.   Droim an Bhothaigh is the 1468th highest place in Ireland.

Low but wild hill with coastal views.
Short Summary created by simon3  27 May 2014
Although just scraping into MV's lists with an estimated prominence of 100m this summit has the feel of somewhere high, remote and wild.
One place to start is at C2393 4201 starA where there is space for 1 or 2 cars. Immediately north of here is a minor driveable but untarred road, which starts uphill allowing you to gain height quickly. Follow this as far as it goes and then head for the summit over rough boggy ground and near a reed bed.
Views from the top include Lough Swilly - to the west is Murren Hill with its large telecoms installations. Don't miss Lough Doira, a scenic lake on the way up. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1345/comment/15589/

Drumavohy: a hill with character !!
by David-Guenot  3 Oct 2015
Parked alongside the road at C23374173 starB, which is probably not the best option, but left enough room for any vehicle to pass. Followed the farm track immediately to the right; it veers to the left at some point, and I soon forgot any temptation to continue straight uphill, as the sign on the gate was clear: beware of the bull. So I stayed on the main track, which soon joins another track. Took a right turn, passing by a derelict house and soon the steep W slopes of Drumavohy were visible. Finally turned right, on a wet track and headed straight uphill (a short, but surprisingly very steep climb !!) avoiding a few crags. Did not enjoy much of the views, as the weather had turned cloudy, but the little I could see was nice, with Stocker Strand and the Knockalla ridge visible to the S, Cnoc na Boirne to the W and the W coast of Inishowen to the E. I tried to take a shortcut on the way back in order to avoid the wet portion of track, but it was worse, as the vegetation was a bit dense and the ground as wet... To sum it up: a wee hill with character !! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1345/comment/18345/
