This is a panoramic view of the Bluestacks as seen from the eastern flank of Banagher Hill, directly south. It's hard to provide a single prominent point of reference in a whole range, but the higher part, just right of centre, would correspond to Croaghbane. The blue finger of water just about visible on the mid right is a corner of Lough Eske. Judging by the small number of people one finds walking in these beautiful mountains, they seem to be one of Donegal's best kept secrets. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/209/comment/2839/
