well the butterflies like it
by slemish  15 Jul 2011
Stragraddy Mountain is but a mere bump when compared to the higher peaks of Donegal. simon3 mentions that there is little to recommend this hill beyond an interesting viewpoint of Muckish and I would tend to go along with that. There is room for one car to park just off the N56 at the abandoned farmhouse mentioned by Harry Goodman in his comment (088252 A). There is one fence to cross at the back of the house before you start to ascend the gulley up towards the summit area. Tougher going than it looks through wild pasture with long grass, heather, reeds and boggy pools. The many wild flowers growing between the grass and reeds support a healthy population of insects. I don't think I've ever seen as many butterflies in one place as on the slopes of Stragraddy Mountain. I was feeling the heat of the midday sun and building up quite a sweat from the steep climb when I eventually emerged onto the summit area which is very flat. I was a little puzzled as to where the actual 285m summit was - a small pile of stones seemed to mark it but an area 30m or so away looked slightly higher. Anyway to the views - apart from the high Derryveagh ridge (see photo) there are also fine views to be had over Ards forest park and towards Rosguill and Fanad. Crockmore and Loughsalt Mountain block the view towards Inishowen but the Sperrins are certainly within easy reach of the eye - I could clearly make out the twin cones of Benbradagh and Donald's Hill many miles away. I didn't linger on the summit and soon returned to the car by retracing my steps. Not a hill I can see myself returning to if I'm honest but an interesting enough climb. You can be up and down in 40 minutes if you want to tick this one off. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/968/comment/6411/
