    ... are some interesting displays and a video in the visitor centre which are well worth seeing.

    I take a slightly different route back and come across the remains of a viaduct on the old Letterkenny-Burtonport railway. The viaduct must have spanned a large bog and I've no doubt it wasn't the only one. The railway wasn't profitable enough to last for long; it opened in 1903 and was closed in two stages in 1940 and 1947. A lot of construction work with very little return ....

    ... deserted car park - and here there's a big slice of luck: a map on a signboard. And it's a map which shows a short cut through the lanes, back to where I've left the car, without going all the way down to the coast. I memorise the various twists and turns of the lanes and plod on slowly.

    I'm now pretty knackered and very thirsty in what is now a warm afternoon (over 20C). There are a lot of rest stops before I get back to the car, especially on the final uphill pull. ...

    ... right in the middle of the city, pretty neat. The castle had been burned to the ground as one point instead of surrendering it in war, so some of it has been rebuilt in restoration.

    ... where it goes.

    So, having driven through Dunfanaghy, and for a few miles along the main road, I'm able to take a right turn onto the WAW and enjoy relatively traffic-free conditions. It's not long before I see an attractive place to stop, Meenlaragh. This has a quayside for use by the ferries which connect with the islands of Inishbofin and Tory Island. Inishbofin can be plainly seen, just a couple of miles away, with, perhaps, 20 houses around its own ...

    ... steep meander up the various crags, often with sheer drops nearby. But whoever made it did a decent job, so it's quite walkable. It eventually arrives at an upper quarry and then turns left to reach the summit plateau of Muckish.

    There are three points of interest on the flat top of the mountain - the trig point on the very highest point, a nearby modern cross with great views to the north, and, somewhat further away from the ...
