Published by MV's Gerry McVeigh this beautiful and instructive video is described on YouTube as: "A stunning walk over the Urris Hills and Raghtin More on Inishowen, Donegal, Ireland. Climbing from the golden sands of Lenan Strand to the hills overlooking Lough Swilly and the northernmost reaches of Ireland. Dropping to Mamore Gap and the holy well & grotto then climbing to the heights of Raghtin More. A mini mountain range that can be easily walked in a day." If you have any notion of walking this way you really must watch this video. And if you can't or won't walk, you should watch it anyway!!
