This photograph was taken on a late August evening from Urris Hill.
We drove to the top of Mamore Gap and parked the car. Then we followed the path up to the start of the ridge of Urris Hills, where the view of the sea opened on one side and the inland view of Inishowen Peninsula opened on the other. (A tiny fragment is shown above.)
Following the ridge takes about two hours’ walk across three separate peaks, leading ultimately to Dunree Bay. A second car parked near the beach there can facilitate a three or four hour walk. Alternatively turning at the South Western end of the ridge allows the walker to return along the ridge for the full day hike.
This photograph shows a selection of the huge number of wind turbines that have now been installed on the Inishowen Peninsula, in County Donegal, Ireland.
Inishowen is now undoubtedly a net exporter of energy.
