Started at approx. 444373 B at a small quarry which provides a couple of parking spaces. Climb up back of quarry, clattering over loose rock and parallel a rough track, cross a delightful little burn with waterfall with foxgloves and bumble bees and head over grass towards Damph . The bulk of S Snaght draws attention to the right with its very different top of heather and stone. A farmer was herding sheep near the top with the aid of sheepdog and more modern quad. Cross a fence and some wetter ground, as rise firmer ground and another fence brings the non descript top.

Views open up along Lough Swilly, Buncrana and of course Slieve Main and Slieve Snaght to the NW (with Raghtin More visible in thier col). To the E a low line of hills stretched down towards Derry, with Lough Foyle and the start of the Sperrins just visible.

An easy 40 minutes of walking but of course it would be a crime to stop here when such other delights beckon. S Snaght and S Main are both within easy reach and on a good day the views are built up layer by layer as height is gained. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/733/comment/3373/
