Old Country Road Leading To Mount Errigal In Donegal, Ireland
View of Mount Errigal in the Derryveagh Mountain Range in Donegal. The backroads are beautiful but very bumpy, better suited to mountain biking but the views are incredible. This old country road created the perfect foreground to frame Mount Errigal and the flash of blue sky that appeared overhead.

Carin O on Doonaveeragh in Carrowkeel, Sligo
This cairn overlooks a valley dividing it from the other passage tombs but has the most incredible view across lough Arrow. It's a scramble up the sides unless someone has found a less direct route to the top but definitely worth it. It's also the site of an abandoned neolithic village where the tomb builders used to live, an amazing place.
