Approach from Glenveagh
by peter1  30 Jul 2018
Approach to Dooish from the South is very 'Doo-able'. There is a small building (possibly an old school?) at the Western end of the lake with an easy crossing of the river.There are a number of ways to get here, one of which is to cycle from the car park at the entrance to Glenveagh. This is around 7.4k. Another, shorter approach is from the West, down the track at the bend in the R254 road.
If using this route to Dooish, (see track 3872),I would recommend ascending/descending by the waterfall, NOT the route of ascent I used. This is very hard work and filled with potholes, boulders and long grass. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/19994/

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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/2342/
