MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Buckoogh in area North Mayo, Ireland

Buckoogh is an isolated peak positioned between the Bengorm/ Corranabinnia area to its west and the Glenlara/ Birreencorragh/ Knockaffertagh area to its east. On the day this picture was taken we had to descend to under 400 metres to get below the cloud base. From here the vantage point can give stunning views, though it was somewhat misty on the occasion the picture was taken. The body of water at the front of the picture is Furnace Lough which connects to the sea through a narrow channel, not obvious in the picture. The islands beyond are in Newport Bay, the north eastern part of Clew Bay. Shrouded in mist on the other side of this is the impressive bulk of Croagh Patrick.
