by simon3  30 Sep 2002
Aghla Beg (South) is also known by the tongue-twisting Ardloughnabrackbaddy and is the highest of a triangle of summits known as the "Aghlas" between Muckish and Errigal. Its north-eastern face is very steep sided, leading to Lough Aluirg shown here in the picture. Unusually the lough appears unshadowed and very blue as a result of good weather with blue skies. The heights at the top of the picture is a view along the broad back of Muckish. Between Muckish and L. Aluirg is the complicated high ground around Crocknalaragagh (471m).
