Combined a walk from Paddy Dillon's "Walking The North of Ireland" and The Rough Guide - Walking in Ireland to give a 17km walk from the B47 to the road just below County Rock and up to the trig point on Sawel. Despite the terrible weather forecast the weather was beautiful, warm, sunny and only windy on the very top. Fantastic views all round and a cracker of a day. Headed on to Dart and back down to the B47 after stopping for photos at the trig Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/144/comment/2837/
