    Glenveagh Castle

    ... but a few metres above it, there's a good strong safety railing in place to stop anyone falling down the precipice (the path is at least 10ft wide here).

    Safe in the knowledge that I won't get run over, I cover the 4km to the castle. Just before I get there, there's a little viewpoint next to the lake with a few seats on it. Despite the fact that it's on the other side of that dangerous road, I decide to risk going to it. There's a dozen steps from it down to the shore. With ...

    ... the Bloody Foreland, a name which seems to apply to the whole District, but in particular to a low headland where the coast turns south. No, the name doesn't derive from any ancient battle or massacre - it's merely a reference to the colour of the rocks on the headland. So the explanation is just as innocent as that for the Poisoned Glen. They seem to go in for grim place names around here - there's a sign in Dunfanaghy pointing to somewhere called Kill!

    The plan for today is to walk round the small peninsula to the north of Dunfanaghy as far as its northern end which is called Horn Head and where there are some spectacular cliffs which I could see yesterday across Sheephaven Bay from the Rosguill Peninsula. The day starts bright and sunny and soon warms up after a bit of chilliness at first.

    The first part of the route is westwards out of the village and then across sand dunes ...

    Muckish

    ... mountain is Muckish, closer to the north coast (and therefore to Portnablagh) than Errigal, but at 670m it's not quite as high. And not as shapely either. There's a bog trot to the top from the southern side, but I opt for a northern approach via the Miners' Track, a route which uses the paths and tracks of an old quarry, where they used to mine fine quality silica sand for use in making optical glass. The quarry has been shut for at least ...

    ... the Russian judge. It must be a frequent problem for walkers in Ireland.

    After lunch in the car park, I drive a mile or two further on for a brief look at the roofless Dunlewy church, built about 1853 and in ruins since 1955. Then there's time for a short afternoon walk in the Poisoned Glen. There are three possible explanations for the name, only one of which is as sinister as the name sounds. Either (1) the name is simply a ...
