Walkers Welcome!

Scraigs presented an imposing profile approaching from the NW and became even more impressive as its steep slopes swept up from the shores of Lough Finn. Mist was just clearing its top whilst in the background the top of Aghla was lost.

A small road (928025 D) drops to the NW end of Lough Finn and rises to the col between Scraigs and Aghla above Lough Muck. There is parking for a couple of cars beside a water pumping station (922012 E) at 230m - a perfect place to head straight for the summit.

A fence runs up behind the pumping station and can be followed all the way to the summit area, although it is more fun to keep to the steep edge high above Lough Finn. As i looked back over Lough Muck a heron lazily swept past. Sounds of tractors chugging and the chimes of church bells at 12 on a Sunday drifted up from below. The little railway yard was all closed up for winter or its sounds would have added to the mix

Views N ended in a wall of mist only hinting at the heights of the Derryveaghs but a coastline started to reveal itself to the W. The call of ravens echoed around the summit above and it was not long until i joined them - in just over half an hour. A sizeable cairn marks the top. Views stretch the entire lenght of the impressively long Lough Finn, past Aghla Mtn to the towering coastline at Maghera. Following the coast N brings Aran and the high Derryveaghs and all around to Inishowen. Continuing it was the turn of the Sperrins and the impressively rugged Bluestacks.

An easy return along same or similar route. Back at the car a farmer and his 5 sheepdogs engaged in a lengthy chat. He owns the hill of Scraigs and most of Aghla as well as Lough Muck. Walking is fine, although he is wary of dogs due to the potential damage to his sheep. In his eyes walkers are more sparse than previous years. Fish in Lough Muck are just as sparse due to the conifer plantations and mink roam these parts due to a now closed mink farm in the area.

It's good to talk! Oh and to walk!! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/708/comment/6690/
