Some Of The Best Views In Donegal

The third summit on a walk which had started with Aghla More, and taken in Ardloughnabrackbaddy on the way. This is a magnificent part of the country for views, and on reaching the top, I was blown away again by new views down the steep eastern side to Lough an Loirg, and beyond to Crocknalaragagh and Muckish. Once I had taken the walk in from the R251 to Altan Tower and up to Aghla More, the rest of the tops were easily reached too. Fantastic walking on a good day, and it was on to Aghla Beg for a fourth and last summit next. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/266/comment/18450/
