The Bluestacks Five. Not the 1961 Liverpudlian big girl skiffle band. But the compact circular route in the heart of the Donegal-Ballybofey-Glenties triangle. Park at the Old School at G95935-94116 (you will see that I parked and started further west where there was room for a single car). For a few hundred metres of purchase you get boulder fields, granite like freshly stirred cement, Henry Moore left overs: a melange of Maamturkian rock in the burrenesque style. And water. Puddles. Pools. Roamin' baths. Even the darkly French Lough Belshade- an erratic nom noir among the anglicised Irishisms (Manger votre coeur Monsieur PDT). And just when the rock is getting to you, up pop the soft and charmingly green Lavagh sisters. They can be slippery: proceed with caution
