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.

csd on Dart Mountain, 2009

Having had a rather late start (avoid going through Cookstown on a Saturday, the traffic is a nightmare), I chose the easy option: park the car at the pass on the road to Park at H58950 96912 F, and follow the fence east to the summit of Dart Mountain. There's room for three or four cars here by the cattle grid, and you'll be up at the summit in half an hour if you don't dally. Unfortunately the clouds came down as I started my ascent, so I only got a taster of the views. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/244/comment/3599/
