The Raghtins are well worth a visit, excellent views and a good one for the lungs. Regularly run up Butlers Glen onto these summits, can also be accessed from Mamore Gap. Views across Urris hills to Muckish, Errigal, Fanad Head, Tory Island and Inishowen can be breathtaking; good photo opportunities! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/451/comment/225/
