My last walk of the year in 2017, and I was lucky enough to get some snow cover, adding to the already dramatic views to be had from this small hill. I started from the R254 road where the track forming the back entrance to Glenveagh National Park starts. The walk could certainly be done quicker than the time I posted as I spent a lot of time admiring the views and taking photographs.
After reaching the summit, I walked beyond it a little way to the northeast for the views over Lough Beagh and Glenveagh Castle. On the return leg, I also stayed to the northwest of the summit for better views of the valley separating the Glendowan and Derryveagh Mountains, and the steep slopes of this side of the Derryveagh Mountains.
