I did this route in winter conditions, and the views to be had around the Derryveagh Mountains, over Dunlewey, and across the Poison Glen are excellent. I was only doing Drumnalifferney NE Top, having missed it out on a previous walk, but the route could be easily extended to take in other summits. I was also stopping for a lot of photos, so the route could definitely be done quicker.
