Exceeded My (Low) Expectations
by Aidy  21 Apr 2016
Sunday was a dull, overcast day, so I decided to bag a few of my local 100, saving better days for something other than what I thought would be less than exciting summits. Its all relative of course, and just being out walking anywhere is a pleasure, but the hills in this area are undeniably not the greatest. With low expectations, Derrin turned out to be not so bad. Taking Peter Walker's route from Track 2783 was an easy way up, and the hill provides pleasant views to neighbouring hills and further afield to Cuilcagh, Benbulbin, and the Navar viewing point near Legg Hill. The sun even broke through occasionally for the only time that day, to illuminate patches of the countryside below. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1193/comment/18500/
