An enjoyable Sunday morning walk to the top of Scalp via the road access to the communication masts at the top. Unfortunately the top 25% was in cloud and so a very wet (and windy) atmosphere. Didnt spoil the walk though and the views of Inch Island, Lough Swilley and Lough Foyle as we came down out of the clowds were excellent.
