I know it's probably belittling it a little, but once I got it into my head to try to get all 22 Inishowen tops done in four days I needed a quick way up Mouldy Hill. So I eschewed any coastal starts and studied the map, eyes alighting on the road running high up the south flank (past a settlement named Roosky on Sheet 7). There is a very short track marked as leaving the road at 359 281 B: on the ground it has a gate at the bottom and is almost opposite a farm. I managed to squeeze a car off the road a short way to the east.

Once over the gate the track soon ends at a fence, easily conquered by means of a gap at its right hand end where it meets another (no clambering required). You're now climbing between two fences (which on my visit formed comforting barriers between myself and the livestock): keep close in to the right hand one. At the top of the strip is another blocking fence: climb over a handy gate and a short plod leads to the ridge at 359 285 C.

From here said ridge provides tussocky but reasonable going to the top. A little energy could be conserved by cutting the ridge corner on the right (north-east), but that would rob you of the fine seaward prospect. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/944/comment/6151/
