View from Errigal

This is a photo taken from the top of Errigal, the highest peak in Donegal. The view is over Altan Lake with Mackoght on the right and the twin peaks of Aghla More and Aghla Beg in front. For many years there was an annual Challenge Walk called The Glover where you had to climb the 'Seven Sisters' of Aghla Beg Aghla More Ardloughnabrackbaddy Crocknalaragagh Errigal Mackoght & Muckish all in the one day... a 'tight' walk by anyone's standards! Grin The day I took this was 'lesser' walk by comparison! Thanks for checking out my pic - nice to be able to admire this view without your leg muscles begging for mercy ! Wink

Another beauty Annie. I was 12 when I went up Errigal and we could see nothing from the top. I heard a lamb bleating and when I looked it had fallen down a hole and couldn't get out. We re-united it with it's mother, and I felt really good. That was 47 years ago my goodness!

Hi Alan - thanks for your lovely comments - and what a lovely story about the lamb, your good deed for the day I'm sure! Smile Yes Donegal is also (in my opinion) the nicest county in Ireland also - there are just so many beautiful locations and hey the people are great too Grin Thanks for checking out my pic!
