Done some walking in Donegal and want to stretch your legs on a journey south perhaps via Lifford/Strabane?

This is an easy stroll of 800m from a forest entrance along a forest track to a trig pillar. En-route there are great views north to the Derryveaghs, Bluestacks, Donegal NW area and Inishowen.. The ten wind turbines (as of 2008) of Owenreagh Hill and the mast on Koram hill in the Sperrins are visible. The start is at the forest entrance at 304113 A

The picture shows the view NW to the Derryveaghs. Starting from the left these are: Errigal, Mackoght, Beaghy, Aghla More, Aghlas and Ardloughnabrackbaddy, Crocknalaragagh (Na Leargacha ) and finally the broad back of Muckish on the right skyline. The denser white conurbation on the left is Letterkenny. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/987/comment/3345/
