There is a Cairn here somewhere...

I was intrigued by the name of this summit so I tried to find out a bit more. According to historical PRONI Ordnance Survey maps the site of Donald's Carn is situated at J4760 9788 D. I could only find one mention of Donald's Carn online in an article by Francis Joseph Biggar in the Belfast News Letter in 1923, posted on facebook by the 'Memories of Islandmagee' group-

"The stone of Finn MacCool still lies at Clochfin, no one fit to raise it since the hero’s time. The site of Donald’s carn is shown at Gransha, and a fine one still remains at Ballydown, within a few yards of which many richly ornamental urns were turned out only to crumble to ashes.
