Slieve Snaght is situated in the middle of Inishowen and is the peninsula’s 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 mountain views website.
Take this and you will come to a farm gate which you go through (make sure and shut all gates ) once through the gate continue to a crossroads of the bog roads and a slate sign with the direction of the Slieve Snaght route.
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 you.
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. The walk was a round trip of slightly more than 12 km.
