This was the day we were going to climb Muckish Mountain. We set off that morning,with... More

Muckish is visible over a wide area, and is instantly recognisable from its shape. There is a tarmac track which goes all the way to the (disused) quarry at its base. For climbers, there are two alternative routes to the top. Access is not obvious from maps, and certainly not from satnav. If you are planning to go, I recommend... More

I have always looked upon Muckish as just another mountain, as it was a common view from my gran's farm and one I have seen growing up. But now we have actually gone there it is spectacular, even just the sight of it covered in snow is one to melt your heart.

We have always seen this mountain as a backdrop to our travels in Donegal and eventually took the opportunity to climb it one clear April day. It took a couple of hours but the view was fantastic at the top.

It was not a very good day weather wise - but we still climbed up to see the views, which all looked the same so we were a bit disappointed. Anyhow you never know till you try.

My Wife and two dogs came up by the old miners path and it was hard work in some parts. The views from the top were well worth the climb. There are some tricky bits and the ground can be dangerous in places. I wouldn't like to do it in fog or heavy rain. Once on top of the mountain... More

We traveled with the sole purpose of climbing Muckish. The morning was foggy but we convinced ourselves it would lift. It didn't. We reached the summit but could see no scenery on the way up. We could not see the cross it was that bad. We got lost on the way and had to get Mountain Rescue. All ended well... More

As a child/teenager I went to Falcarragh gealteacht. Muckish was my landmark. If the mountain top was visible in the morning it would be a good day. It was lovely to revisit it The area is as beautiful as ever and the beach is fantastic.

As a flying instructor out of St Angelo, Enniskillen I have flown around and over Muckish more times than I could ever count. Like all mountains it can differ greatly in different light conditions I have been lucky enough to see it in most conditions including pouring rain.

Like and mountains muckish is nice to climb and take in scenery but please be very weary if you attempt to go up in a car as you may reach a point of the mountain that it is so thin you can only reverse, (try doing this at night) :)
