Hill Walks in Connemara and Donegal

These are photographic records of some hill walks in Connemara and Donegal. The camera is a Canon A95. Canon Ixus 95 from August 2009.

Connemara is superb walking territory. Unlike Donegal, few walks require a one or two mile slog through bog before you get onto a hill. Also, on the hills there is little or no deep heather or bracken.

Good books.

Here are some rather random web links on hillwalking.
