For the sake of the environment its best to start at the public car-park (there are several other routes, including the challenging NW ridge) ..a boggy start soon gives way to a 30 degree ridge walk, which may be windy but is very obvious, and the views from the top twin peaks are simply stunning. best done in late evening or early morning, to see the huge conical shadow of the mountain reach out towards the islands. Golden eagles can sometimes be seen soaring overhead,and the lakes, hills, and islands of Donegal are all around.In summer ..wear insect repellent! good strong shoes are needed as the quatzite rock is harsh, and moves a bit under foot. its a magical, special, beautiful airy summit..and you can see for miles and miles. 2.5 hours for a easy total trip..1 hr return for fit young mountain goats.
