Best Views in Donegal?
by jsramsey1491  3 Oct 2015
I have climbed Lough Salt Mountain quite a few times now, in all sorts of weather. It's one of those mountains that you never tire of and I think this is because of the stunning 360 degree views you are rewarded with from the summit. It is my opinion, and that of many of my friends, that the views from this rather modest peak are among the very, very best in Donegal.
