Dooish overlooks Lough Beagh and the Glenveagh National Park. Divis Mountain, overlooking Belfast, shows a different anglicisation of the same name. It is also possible that Dubhais is itself a re-interpretation of an earlier name, especially as other colours do not appear to combine with ais in hill -names. Something akin to Welsh diffwys meaning ‘steep slope’ or ‘desolate area’ would seem apt both for Divis in the Belfast Hills and to Dooish in Glenveagh.   An Dubhais is the 195th highest place in Ireland.

See Crockmulroney, Cró an Locháin & Cruach Na Sagart for previous legs in circuit. From Cruach na Sagart it was a trudge across similar ground to that described in the Cró an Locháin leg to spot height south-west of Ednadooish, then Ednadooish itself where I stopped for lunch near to a Deer fence, although didn't spot any deer while there. Really hot day, however, a cooling mountain breeze was most welcome. After short stop and a few short ascents/descents into burns along the way ascended the slab strewn western slopes of Dooish. GPS reading at Dooish cairn was IB 98221 21037 A – 654m. Fantastic views from summit across to Errigal & Mackoght; Aghla More with Lough Altáin resplendent in the sunshine, Aghla Beg & Muckish. The Urris Hills on the Innishowen Peninsula were also clearly visible to northeast. Slieve Snaght, Bingorms & Drumnaliffernan to mention but a few to the west/southwest. The roundabout route might be seen as somewhat laborious, yet most enjoyable in the wonderful sunshine. May be a less attractive option during spells of inclement weather. Next stop was Saggartnadooish. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/2342/

Donegal Panorama

The third and final stop in a three top walk (see entry for Sagartnadooish for route) and probably the best in terms of view, aesthetic etc. Although rather hazy the day we did it, we still enjoyed a panorama of Errigal and the Aghlas to the north and clear across Glenveagh to the south. Pic show summit cairn with Errigal visible through the haze. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/6339/
