zeaphod on Drumnalifferny Mountain, 2006
by zeaphod  1 Jun 2006
One of my favourite walks in Donegal, a circuit up the Poisoned Glen, up the cleft at the end of the valley - looks impossible from a distance, but is just an steep walk/easy scramble, then across to the top of Drumnaliffern. On to Slieve Snaght via the col and return via the Devlin river. About 51/2 hours with lunch. A useful tip is to follow the riverbank as much as possible up the Poisoned Glen - it is less boggy (in Donegal terms!) This is a truly wild place, but does have a short emergency exit route to the Owencarrow valley. A point to note is that in anything but fine weather you will need to be able to navigate accurately with map and compass to cross to the Slieve Snaght col. This is definitely "complex" terrain.
