  1. Brigid, stunning photos and I’m taken with the sudden appearance of the single mountain surrounded by flat landscape. Have you ever climbed this? The houses nestled around its base look very quaint. The more I see of your photos from Ireland, the more I long to return! It is very special indeed!

    • Thank you so much Annika. I used to go mountain climbing in Scotland and bagged around 25 munroes, but the one day I attempted to climb Errigal with my ex, it was incredibly windy so I sat on a rock 3/4 of way hope while he went to the top. The top is covered in scree, so I made a wise decision. The village of Dunlewey is very pretty with awesome views of a lake.

      • Wow! That’s a lot of munroes – a huge achivement but definitely wise decision with this mountain. I also saw the snow/ice on top and with the scree makes for a tricky ground. Oh, the lake looks beautiful, almost hauntingly so.

  2. Beautiful photograph, Brigid, somehow I just didn’t put Ireland and mountains together-I love the idea of a singular mountain like that-very striking. I agree with what you said-it does remind me of Mt. Fugi

  3. An incredible landscape indeed. And your photos captured the magic beautifully! Apart from visiting AU and Italy I also want to plan a trip to Ireland before I’m 70. But I won’t be climbing that mountain for sure. I know someone who would love to do it though.
