Slieve Snaght is situated in the middle of Inishowen and is the peninsulas highest mountain at a height of 615 metres (2,018 ft). The name Slieve Snaght means snow mountain and on a clear day, you are able to see Scotland.
There are quite a few different routes to climb up the mountain with a lot of the routes and car parking places can be found on the mountainviews.ie website.
When I walked up I parked at the car park at the Sliabh Snaght centre in Drumfries from there you walk just over 1 km along the main road to Carndonagh. At this point on the right-hand side you will see a road going up the hill, take it and walk until you come to a gate. once through the gate there is a crossroads of bog roads and a slate sign with the direction of Slieve Snaght. this road lasts for around 1 km where it dwindles to nothing, from here it is a walk across the bog over heather and grasses. There is no set route up the mountain so choose a route that you think will suit yourself.
On the day I walked up it was beautifully clear all the way until I was about to reach the top then a low cloud appeared and obscured everything. so the site will have to wait until next time before I can put up pictures from the summit. The walk was a round trip of slightly more than 12 km.
