Ireland: Errigal Mountain

Mount Errigal

County Donegal is known for its dramatic peaks, and Mount Errigal stands tallest—a towering 2,466 feet—among them. Made from metamorphic rock, the mountain is an outdoor enthusiast's playground, and many visitors come to hike, picnic, or explore the area.

"Whether you hike to the top or look at it from a distance, [Mount] Errigal evokes ancient Ireland, and is a living part of today's landscape as well," said reader kathleen2.
