Starting at the back gate of Glenveagh national park this walk provides an ever widening vista of the Derryveagh mountains as the walk progresses. I particularly liked how a triangular profile of Errigal gradually appears on the ascent of Staghall mountain until, when i reached the summit of Maumlack mountain the view had widened out to include the entire seven sisters from Muckish to Errigal. The weather conditions on this autumn day yielded enough clarity of visability to also give a glimpse of Slieve League and what I assume to be Ben Bulbin in the far distance to the South.- A thoroughly enjoyable walk!
NB- The correct total ascent for this walk was 608m
