The Charm Is In The Views
by Aidy  2 Oct 2015
The like the previous commentators, I took the track leading to the mast to access the summit, and therefore have nothing to add as regards the easy route up. Just wanted to show another aspect of the views to be had, this time down over the Creevagh Hill Lake reservoir with a glimpse of the Foyle beyond. This small hill does have a charm.
