Like csd I drove up the boreen from the Glenties road and parked by the sheep pen on the crest about half a km from its end. There's plenty of room for one car, but it could be a problem after heavy rain as the surface was a bit mushy (what, rain in Donegal? Surely not). Headed down southwards to cross the stream and follow the track up the hill, then out onto easy open ground to the summit. A few outcrops gave some optional scrambly playing. As for garrettd this was my final VL, having finished Paddy Dillon's list in 1999, so I made sure to go to all the summits. As far as I could tell in the mist the heights were pretty similar. Took a more direct line down to the road end, which was a mistake as the ground was much boggier and it meant running the gauntlet of the unfriendly farm dog in the yard. The farmer called it off but the only reaction I got to a friendly wave was a scowl. Bit of a contrast to the Kerry farmer a few days before where we had blethered for ages, until his wellies started to fill with water! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/278/comment/18728/
