Finest Coastal Walk?
by CaptainVertigo  11 Oct 2014
Gerrry McVeigh's YouTube masterpiece "The Finest Coastal Walking in Ireland (Walks around Port in Donegal)" throws down the gauntlet to the rest of you who think otherwise. But no matter how wonderful your bit of coast may be it's hard to know if you will be able to capture its essence as perfectly as McVeigh has done here. The nominal goal of the walk will be Slievetooey Far W Top but the fact is that the whole route is top class.
The YouTube description says:
A walk along some of the finest coast in Ireland in the far west of Donegal. Starting in remote An Port and climbing up to reach a stunning stretch of cliffs, passing above sea stacks of all shapes and sizes. Dropping to sea level to visit the amazing storm beach at Glenlough Bay, watching seals and rivers dropping into the Atlantic. Climbing steeply to even higher cliffs and to Slievetooey Far West Top at over 1,500 ft.
Gerry has uploaded the exact route here at TRACK 2176. A short quote from his write up:
The cliffs kept rising and rising to over 1,000 feet before the pull of Slievetooey tore me away. Across the water to the north and west snow capped mountains told a tale of the harsh late March weather. A stiff breeze told me how cold it was as my boots crunched over patches of old snow. The broad stoney top of Slievetooey Far West Top at over 1,500 feet gave a vantage point back over the wild coast just travelled. From the summit cairn the clear air gave views across Donegal Bay to the mountains of Sligo, the Bluestack Mountains and the iconic hills to the north of Donegal.
Check out Gerry's Track and watch his movie. And I hope that, some day, you'll experience the real thing Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/580/comment/17724/
