A classic route in the Derryveagh along the Slieve Snaght ridge, taking in 6 summits. Start by R254/Lough Barra. Walk along the road westbound for a while then uphill towards Croaghnasharragh. The ground becomes firmer as it rises. A W to E route along the ridge allows you to enjoy the fantastic vista over the Seven Sisters. Did this walk in June 2014 with my friend Wilderness, under perfect weather conditions. Slieve Snaght is a beautiful, massive mountain, but our preference went to Drumnalifferny and its steep W cliffs. The descent along Scardangal Burn is very steep at some point and the end is a bit of a slog on wet, uneven ground, not too long though. We had the chance to meet some deer and quite a few frogs. A great day out !!
