A day on Cuilcagh mountain

Cuilcagh mountain is a mountain on the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. One Sunday morning I and the other EVS volunteers decided to go to Legnabrocky to do one of the walking routes on the mountain.

After almost 5 km of easy stony path, we went on a wooden boardwalk constructed over a very moist bog, followed by steps  that climbed through steep and stony terrain before reaching the summit.

The wooden path rises steeply and is difficult to climb if you are not in a good shape. Between breaks we enjoyed the scenic wilderness of Cuilcagh Mountain and breathtaking views of Lough Atona, a lake nestled at the foot of the mountain. We took lots of photos, the scenery at the summit is undoubtedly the main attraction of the trail.

Unfortunately, during the return route, a heavy rainstorm caught us by surprise when we were walking down the way. This is Ireland!
