The view down Glengesh that absolutely everyone photographs
This semi-popular (well, it features in Mr Hendroff's guidebook!) Donegal route provides a rufty-tufty few hours across hills with a very occasional thin trod to guide, but is mostly tough grass and peat. As such it's difficult to work up a head of steam anywhere other than on the bit of road at the start, but steady progress is possible throughout. There's a few fences to climb over (the kink in the route between the two summits is down to my having to find a bit of the barbed wire sufficiently benign for me to feel comfortable lifting His Indyness over it) but otherwise access is good and open.

I'm sure there are excellent views, but we didn't see them.
