The ride from Troy Island to the mainland.
looking toward Magheroarty Bay in Donegal, the Republic of Ireland. The mountain is Mount Errigal situated in the north-west of Donegal between Dunlewy, Gweedore, Gortahock and Glenveagh. It’s a most distinctive and exciting mountain standing at over 752 metres (2,467 ft). You will notice it’s white in appearance and has a near perfect conical shape. The white appearance is a result of the extensive amounts of scree on the slopes.
Errigal dominates the landscape and valley. It provides a dramatic backdrop to the shallow peat valley, subdivided by low dry stone walls, which follow you to Dunlewy. Errigal is steep and needs great care, particularly on descent, but the views are really breathtaking on every side. Access to the uppermost peak is via a narrow goat track where the ground falls away sharply on either side. If you have a poor head for heights be content with the lower ridge. The summit ridge offers views over Glenveagh National Park, the Poison Glen, and on a clear day Tory Island, off the north west coast.
