A McVeigh Film
by CaptainVertigo  5 Oct 2014
Gerry McVeigh has posted another top class film on YouTube. This one features a walk along the pilgrim trail of the Way of the Cross to a stunning outdoor chapel on the slopes of Knockalla mountain. A climb to the 2 tops separated by a lovely walk with fabulous views over the mountains and coast of Donegal. All the McVeigh trademarks are there. Crystal clarity. Attention to detail. Lovely panoramic views. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/884/comment/17707/
