    ... 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 ....

    ... on the provisional list for this week, but I've already ruled out the northern approach as that would involve crossing the boggy end of the Poisoned Glen. Now I can rule out a southern approach too, as there's not a hint of a path anywhere - just deep heather and steep boggy ground. No point in deluding myself that there's likely to be any pleasure in going up that one!

    It's been quite a long drive by the time I'm back at Portnablagh. Yet more sunset pictures. ...

    ... anyone who tries to complete the route gets shot ....

    Having got back to the first barbed wire fence (and having stepped over another gap in its defences!), I find a way back to the nearest lane. I haven't made much progress towards Horn Head so far, so it's time to speed things up by using tarmacked roads. Eventually, some huge cliffs can be seen in front and I leave the road for a very rough path along the cliff tops. This ...

    ... a huge cairn, at least 20ft high, which has the best views to the south. Someone spent a lot of time and trouble building the cairn, and it's difficult to imagine why!

    After some time spent admiring the view, I return by virtually the same route, but this time using the rubble in preference to the bog in the troublesome middle section of the route. In contrast to the number of people on Errigal, I've hardly seen anyone all ...

    ... things turn pear-shaped later, I'm going for Errigal straight away.

    First of all, find it. I have to drive back towards Letterkenny for a dozen miles or so and then turn west on minor roads. The scenery becomes wilder and more mountainous as I get into the Glenveagh National Park, and before long I've found a small car park at the bottom of Errigal. It's only 9.30am, but I can see a couple of people near the top - some of them must ...
