It was a beautiful spring morning as a parked in the carkpark at the glen house, Urris. Starting off on a 1 km walk through the glen house waterfall park. When you reach the waterfall i went off to the right were you climb a steep ravine, when you get to the top of that the beauty of raghtin more is starring straight at you. The walk ahead west side is through heather, ferns and marshy bogland but that is all part of the challenge. Good footwear is essential. As you get 100m from the summit it can be rocky with loose rocks stacked on each other, good concentration is essential.When you on the summit the views range from every angle Lough swilly, Fanad , to the west, Slieve snacht to the east and the coastline of scotland to the north east. A great walk!! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/451/comment/3841/
