Easy walk up to great views
by Fergal Meath  26 Nov 2016
Low lying cloud/mist/fog discouraged me from putting the effort into going up Nephin today. On the way home I parked at the start of the Croaghmoyle service road and followed it past a wind turbine, past some beautiful woods and over turbulent streams all the way to the summit. The mist cleared as I reached the summit and once I got past the ugly masts to the trig pillar, I was rewarded with wonderful views of Birreencorragh (left) and Nephin (right) floating above the mist.
