A wonderful Panorama
by Garmin  19 Jul 2012
Climbed Loughsalt mountain this afternoon following Vikinghar's route. It was a lovely afternoon for the climb with great visibility. The path to the top starting at the pumphouse gate C121 255 A makes for relatively easy going and was surprisingly dry considering the recent wet weather.

What a wonderful 360 degree panorama at the top with views of Binevenagh running to Benbradagh , Sleive Snaght and the Urris Hills in Innishowen, Sawel and Dart in the Sperrins and Muckish to Errigel in NW Donegal. An added bonus is that this mountain is completely unspoiled with thankfully no sign of Mobile Phone towers or other structures which polute so many other mountains.

Will definately climb this one again! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/553/comment/14728/
