Followed Michael G's excellent instructions to reach this small summit whilst also taking in the other nearby trio of Balbane Hill, Mullanuff and Crocknapeast. The summit is marked by a neat small cairn with good views over Killybegs and Donegal Bay Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/801/comment/23796/
