Easy walk over rough ground for dramatic views.
Short Summary created by simon3  13 Sep 2010
There's impressive views of the ridge that includes Slieve Snaght and Dooish as well as Errigal and much of the rest of Donegal such as the Bluestacks from this summit.
One easy way to ascend is from the NE, starting at around B9616 1492 A on the R254. There is a small battered bridge here and various places to park. Go SW to reach the summit, savouring the widening view as you ascend. The height gain is around 330m to the top and a round trip will take perhaps 90 minutes.
Another place to start is from the car park beside Lough Barra at B936124 B. The route is approximately NE from here, requiring finding a place to cross the river Barra. This may not be possible after heavy rainfall. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/377/comment/5136/
