I went up Scalp after the St.Paddy's weekend storm. It was the first nice day we had in Derry tho' on the hill it was cloudy all around me was sun.
It's not a very challenging walk, took about 2 very casual hrs to reach the top. Quite a view of the Inch and Derry, all along the Swilly.
Good for people to warm up on for bigger climbs. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/502/comment/2706/
