WELCOME TO OUR HOME PAGE
Our next ramble on Sunday 31st August is a Grade B Walk up the highest mountain in the Bluestacks Mountains in Donegal. Croaghgorm is at a height of 674m with a tough descent. Below are 2 pictures which show our route into the mountain. The walk should take about 5 hours. After the rain during August some of the terrine is wet. Boots, legging and gaiters necessary. If Sunday 31st is wet and there is no view of the mountain top we will do an easier walk, starting from the same place. For those who don't need to come up to Omagh we will be going through Ballybofey, turning right at Bonners Pub (R252) Glenties. Continue along this road for about 3 miles. There is a church on a bend, signposted Coimin, turn left here. This would be a good place to meet up.
On Saturday the 23rd of August a great turn out of 34 ramblers were treated with great visibilty and fantastic views. From Binevenagh Mountain to the Inishowen Peninsula , the Scotiish Islands of Islay and Jura to Mussenden Temple and Magillian Point to the Antrim Coast and the Mouth of the River Bann. The Ramblers even gatecrashed a wedding in Ballykelly on the way back to Omagh. Full walk report shortly
