Exquisite Film
by CaptainVertigo  26 Mar 2015
Oh this is a truly exquisite work! A clear case of the best getting even better.
'Wild Ireland': A Two Day Trek and Bivouac in the Derryveagh Mountains, Donegal is the full title and it's a tribute to the wonderful Derryveagh Mountains.
Let me quote Sharron Schwartz and Martin Critchley
"This video, the first in a new series of ‘Wild Ireland’ films, follows a 30 km two day trek and overnight bivouac in the Derryveagh Mountains of County Donegal in mid-March 2015. In the valley close to Dunlewy Lough, the first flush of spring was everywhere: birdsong filled the air, tentative green shoots sprouted from seemingly lifeless brambles, catkins dangled from winter weary boughs and saffron yellow coltsfoot flowers erupted from amid paper dry and ragged yellow grasses like condensed droplets of sunshine. But up on the mountains, where we endured a bitter easterly wind, winter had yet to release its icy grip and on the highest ground, the last snows of winter lingered on. Our tent was silvered with frost, icicles oozed from frozen peat hags, verglas smeared the naked granite and ice-covered bog loughs gleamed like glass in the deep chill of early morning.
It is possible to do this route, which offers truly joyful walking in one of the wildest corners of Ireland, taking in eight summits and breath-taking views down over the Poisoned Glen, as a circular walk from the excellent Errigal Youth Hostel. For a GPS track of the route see: mountainviews.ie/track/report/2835/ "

I watched this YouTube Video on a large flat screen TV. The standard is well up to the level of mountain documentaries you might see on BBC and RTE.
If you intend to walk anywhere in the Derryveaghs you should watch this gem Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/497/comment/17892/
