Worth the extra effort

Climbed Errigal & straight over to Mackoght. Path up Mac is not straightforward or obvious at times but well worth the effort for views over Lough. Also lets you appreciate how large Errigal is. Unlike Errigal had the peak to myself. Up & down the 2 peaks in 3 hours, great way to spend a late morning. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/349/comment/17713/
