Record breaking views?

After having just climbed Croaghan Hill in Donegal, I had enough time to include Owenreagh. I parked at the junction of Silverhill Road with Koram Road. Just opposite is another road which proceeds up the hill for a short distance to a dead end. A rough, overgown, boggy track can then be followed, between two fences, with a forest on the left, to the summit. On the short walk up, I had great views of Bessy Bell, and nearby Koram Hill. The television mast on Koram Hill is, according to Wikipedia anyway, the tallest structure in Ireland! I must admit that although it can be seen for miles around, when I stopped there on the drive up, it didn't look that big. I carried on over the summit, through the wind turbines, to the Eastern side of the hill for more stunning views of the Sperrins, the Foyle valley and North Tyrone. Definitely worth the very small amount of effort required for this hill. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/839/comment/15261/
