MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Croaghcarragh (<i>An Chruach Charrach</i>) in area Inishowen, Ireland
Picture: A view of Croaghcarragh (centre) & Urris from Mamore
 
Rugged area with wonderful hills
by Colin Murphy  18 Apr 2022
I agree with Aidy in that this group of hills (Mamore, Croaghcarragh & Urris) appear to be much more substantial than they actually are. There are all rugged, rocky tops with fine, well-defined summits and more resemble something from the Maamturks or the Twelve Bens. The views over the surrounding mountains and Lough Swilly are also tremendous. It was a bit misty the day I did them, but I can imagine that on a fine day these would be truly spectacular.
