Panoramic Croaghegly, Donegal
by jimgraham  14 May 2010
Although no great challenge and rather separated from other Donegal tops, the view from the top of Croaghegly is excellent. As well as the indented coast around, and Aran Island, the top presents a 180 degree panorama of the western face of the Donegal mountains - well worth the moderate climb.
I parked on the side of an abandoned building plot access at B73800 08200 D , walked south along a re-stoned track to an abandoned croft which someone had made a small start on repairing, past the croft and worked my way uphill. Going was less wet than average and not too strenuous, the trig pillar not hard to locate. No fences; a few old walls but no more than one stone high.
