"Valley View Glenveagh" from Hilltop-Harrier Expand pics
Valley View Glenveagh (Expand pics)
Glenveagh one of Ireland’s little gems……………We (Hilltop Harriers) parked the car at 11am the end of the path on the South West side of Glenveagh castle or around the R254 (doing my best here lol) which is 7km away from the castle we decided to track along the river Barra for a couple of km before climbing the steep embankment. Not sure if this was such a good idea as it was tough work the embankment seemed to go on forever even though it’s probably only 150ft high or so you can judge yourself from the pics. The higher we went up the hotter the sun got and the backpack’s weren’t getting any lighter either. Of course we had the dilemma of not knowing if it was going to be warm on top of the hills in the middle of March, so we had come prepared this was our third time trekking through Glenveagh we were sure it would be cold, but boy did we get it wrong it was hitting the high teens when we decided to rest 3 hours into the walk, Staghall I think the area is called, then we progressed on to Claggan Mountain North. We passed a huge waterfall somewhere along the way and some of us climbed down for some good shots. Then of course the highlight of the day the; herd of deer, brilliant. The last day we trekked in Glenveagh I was shocked at just how wet the ground was today it was ok and that was after a month of dry weather. One thing to look out for this hill is full of hidden holes ones you could break a leg in. However leaving that aside the views are stunning on a clear day.
We continued trekking along the ridge for the rest of the day, my detail would bore you but I’m sure my photos will not. We decided to head for home at about 6pm and made our way back to the end of Lough Beagh manoeuvred our way back down the embankment… and through the trees, crossed the beautiful sandy beach, walked along the rough path at the river edge for about 15 minutes until we could see the water was shallow enough to cross. So off came the boots and into the river I went ( ok I didn’t have to but it was lovely), on the river bank now and it was time for another brew……we then followed the path back to the main road for 5km. It was a brilliant day out with a lot of good craic, by the time we got into the car it was 7.30pm. No pillow talk that night I’m afraid.http
