Description 

Cnoc an Affrain is known as being Donegal's only road-side mountain crag with an easy approach from the East by a road built to access the hilltop wind farm. It is known locally as Kerrykeel (Carrowkeel)

Getting There 

From Carrowkeel village take the road for Rathmullen east, After 700 meters there is a Y junction, take the right fork for Oughterlin and stay on this road for 3.5km to a rough road on the right going up up hill to the windfarm. Take this road to the highest windmill and plenty of parking at GR C242 298. There are gates approx a third of the way up the windfarm road but they are never locked just remember to close after use. From the highest wind turbine it is a 10 minute walk west to the crag at GR C239 298.
Cnoc an Affrain crag has an outstanding hilltop view overlooking the Fanad, Ros Guill and Inishowen peninsulas and is well worth a visit on a summers evening.
