This peak overlooks the head of Glenveagh. The name Farscallop is probably related to that of Crockscolabagh (Ir. An Cnoc Scolbach, 'jagged hill'), its lower neighbour to the NE.   Farscallop is the 838th highest place in Ireland.

Went up in the snow from the back entrance to Glenveagh National Park, with the frozen ground helping with what would normally be very boggy conditions. Worth walking past the summit to the northeast to get the views over the National Park, and on the way back I skirted the summit on the northwest side for great views over to the Derryveagh Mountains. Really brilliant views for a small hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/726/comment/19821/
