The smallest Inishowen Arderin
Short Summary created by liz50  21 Mar 2017
The easiest approach is to park at Urrismenagh viewpoint carpark C317 443 A and follow the track to its highest point. From here you can avoid Crockmain and carry on towards Raghtin More to the North.
Alternatively from Mamore Gap car park C323 423 B walk downhill in a SE direction to a gravel track and follow it to the head of the valley before veering off to the North to reach the summit dirctly by avoiding Crockmain.
From the North East park at Butlers Glen C358 468 C with off road parking and walk up through the Glen to the end of the track before ascending over open boggy hillside.
There is a large cairn on the large flat rocky summit area.
To the East is Sl Snaght and to the West Lough Swilly is in view Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/451/comment/5210/
