A McVeigh Film
by CaptainVertigo  12 Oct 2014
Gerry McVeigh has expanded his film range to cover the whole island, but I think that his special fondness is for the beauties of Donegal. It's a county that appears to be full of hidden gems, and Gerry delights in revealing these to us.
Let me quote from Garmin (Track 2224):
This is a very beautiful part of Donegal with 360 degree wonderful views of North West Donegal and beyond. The going underfoot for this walk was generally very good even after a week of heavy rain. There were a couple of very steep sections on the way back including a gully so a little extra care was needed.
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable walk in a remote but lovely part of Donegal
So if you're thinking of going around Lough Salt and up the mountain, check out Track 2224, and enjoy this very informative YouTube piece.
