A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM
by CaptainVertigo  15 Nov 2014
The closest I have gotten to the Aghlas to date is to observe them from Mackoght and Errigal. When I do get to walk that way I will be having another good look at Patrick Zerkowski's YouTube film "Aghla Mor and Aghla Beag" which is a very nicely put together piece. I think that serious walkers will much appreciate the fact that Patrick constantly identifies the mountains and lakes by naming them onscreen. This means that you get a really good look at what you will encounter on your route. Yes work on your maps, and read the wise words of those who have gone before. But don't forget that a picture paints a thousand words.
Patrick manages to show Errigal as a looming giant as he leaves Mackoght for the Aghlas. He comments:
"The biggest problem in this walk was for me crossing boggy wetland between Lough Altan and Mount Errigal. On my way back I had a plan to climb Errigal at the end of that walk but I lost too much power and a lot of time too crossing that boggy wet land and was too late. "
Now Patrick is a top class walker so believe what he says about those bogs!
