Fine summit on larger route
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  7 Apr 2022
Turn south off the Ballybofey / Glenties road and enter the Reelan River Valley, where you will see a sign for Slí na Finne. Room for 6-8 cars at the Old School G95935 94116 starA. From there walk east a few metres and turn south descending towards the Reelan River along Sli na Finne. Cross the bridge and almost straight away turn east and follow the boggy wet track up to the ruined cottage, where you turn south. Once a fence is crossed after the ruined cottage, the conditions underfoot improve and the main theme is rock - slabs and boulders. The incline is not particularly challenging. Glascarns Hill is a distinct rocky top just a couple of metres short of qualifying as an Arderin. It is also often the first stop en route to multiple other mountains.
