Contender For Best Views In Ireland?
by Aidy  26 Apr 2015
What a display this fantastic mountain put on for me today, in conjunction with the weather. I had snow and hail storms alternating with sunshine to create dramatic skies, and I have to agree with the other comments that Loughsalt Mountain is a contender for providing the best views in Donegal, which, for me, means potentially in Ireland too! I started from the southern end and in no time at all was enjoying dramatic views down over Lough Salt and Lough Greenan. Beyond that were the Derryveagh Mountains and the Bluetacks. At the summit, the entire north coast of Donegal was spread out below me from Horn Head and taking in all the northern peninsulas including the entirety of Inishowen. Absolutely breathtaking, and almost overwhelming when taking photographs. It was difficult to chose which view to include here, but in the end I went for the same one as Simon3 and slemish. I'll do a separate post to show the view towards the Urris Hills. If you get a decent day, I don't think anyone would be disappointed by this hill.
