MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Cashelmore in area Donegal NW, Ireland
Picture: The rough hump that is Cashelmore Fort from the south.
 
Huge views from a rough heathery top with ringfort.
Short Summary created by simon3  11 Oct 2015
An obvious place to start is at the beginning of a short track C17206 40627 A. This rough but initially cyclable track leads you to rough ground from which is it reasonably easy to reach the top. Note, the top has a recorded ringfort on it. There are a number of animal tracks leading to the top.
There is a huge panorama of 360 degrees of views from this summit including Muckish, Slieve Snaght, the Knockalla Bay, several coastal points and bays. To the SW is the Harry Blaney bridge, built 2009. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1349/comment/15593/
