B9927 : South descent on Muckish

taken 8 years ago, 4 km from Croaghlosky, Donegal, Ireland

South descent on Muckish
South descent on Muckish
The easiest route up and down Muckish Mountain is from the south. An hours climb from the parking spot near a grotto on the R256 (the bend in the road seen below) gives way to a long flat plateau. This is the view on the descent - the quartzite boulders soon give way to springy peat all the way down to the road.
