Just a few of the perching stones of the Dromderalough ridge. (Expand pics)
Stony Ridge, on balance improbable
There's plenty of boulders left by glaciers all over Ireland. Drumnalifferny and the Saggartnadoishs come to mind. And there's plenty of them at odd, unstable angles. However recently I was on the ridge with the Dromderaloughs just SW of Mangerton and there seemed to be more than I have ever seen in any one area before.

Geologists: why so many here? Why so many at unstable angles? And is there anywhere else in these islands like this place?

When they are made of a different rock to what they are resting on, they are called erratics.

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...
