This summit can add to a the rather short day that Loughsalt Mountain makes. Unlike that quartzite summit it is made of granite, has no paths and few people. Start from the tee junction on the N56 at G0918 2443 A where there is some parking. You can ascend over a waste strewn small cutting here if you don't mind a bit of srambling or you can go to around C0906 2469 B which takes you up past Lough Acrobane. Study the ridges of the land and if you pick carefully you can do a lot of the walking on some of the long bare ridges of rock that arc upwards.

The summit has a few steep bits. There are good views of much of north Donegal, though not as good as Loughsalt Mountain which blocks the panorama.

The photo shows the ridge towards Errigal starting from Muckish at the right. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/901/comment/4103/
