Best
hbowman, just ask and I shall tell. Firstly I think there can be no “best” – there are so many and it all depends on what it is we each want. Best can be airiest or most panoramic or highest drop or most rugged, most gentle, most dramatic, etc. So if you want, speak to me through the mviews messaging service and I shall give my opinions which at the end of the day of course are only mine.
You could start perhaps with the following. Views: whole range from Loughshannagh/Carn area; Meelmore one direction back to high tops and the other to Doan and Carlingford; the Annalong Valley from the countour track on Cove (and this could also come under best walks); Pots of Pulrgarve on Commedagh down into Dundrum Bay; Annalong Buttress to Binnian-Beg run of tops; starters for 10. Walks: Just about everything except the Bloody Bridge Track; loop from Trassey to Meelmore, Mealbeg, Bearnagh and back is tough and rewarding; the Glen River anytime; avoid the Western Mournes except for ticking off; Chimney Rock and Rocky from Carricklittle over Annalong and Spences river – lonely but strangely rewarding; if you like lower woodland anything contouring on the coastal flanks of Blaeberry/Donard area. Only a few suggestions but hopefully you will give them a go.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...
