Cloudberries are found on the western slopes. This rare alpine plant resembles the strawberry plant, to which it is related. The fruit are like orange pearls. The OS Memoirs derive the name from Ir. dart, 'a lump', explaining that When viewed at a distance, it looks like a a lump on Sawel. However, Daigart is the name of a district mentioned by Tírechán in the Tripartite Life. O'Ceallaigh reviewed this information, along with MacNeill's assessment of it, and concluded that Daighart was probably the mountain country of Gleann Fhoichle (Glenelly), in the parish of Both Domhnaigh (Bodoney) and at the bottom of Samhail (Sawel) (Gleanings from Ulster History, Séamus Ó Ceallaigh, p. 23).   Dart Mountain is the 255th highest place in Ireland.

Came across to Dart from Sawel (see comment on Sawel for route) which was both shorter and easier than it looked and then down the gentle slope to a rough track (bearing in mind Paddy Dillon's warnings on access) which brought us back to the B47. Very enjoyable and a walk that will bring me back to the Sperrins again. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/244/comment/2838/
