Surprisingly Good Views
by Aidy  25 Apr 2016
The small hills I've done recently from my local 100 have been a mixed bag, and when I saw how heavily covered by windmills this one was, I didn't have high hopes. I was pleasantly surprised however. The views through the gaps in between were striking at times, particularly as I got some dramatic, stormy weather. Many of the Bluestacks were visible, as were the Glendowan and Derryveagh Mountains. With the access roads making things easy, it was well worth the visit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1087/comment/18509/
