Well today after i'd finished work i decided as it was such a fantastic day i'd go for a short fell walk. There was only a couple of hours day light left but it was so calm and clear i just had to go out somewhere!!
this is the start of my walk starting in Orasaigh, the first stage of the walk is a little difficult, and very steep!
But the view once you've climbed up is great!
here i am leading the way - my honey took all the photo's.
it was really boggy under foot i was so pleased that we had thought to wear our boots.
then once we'd made it up the track and followed the sign posts we got to the top and could see Loch Shaghachain, it was so calm and so peacful.
We had hoped to walk all the way to the abandand village of Stiomrabhaigh but the light was starting to fade so once we got the the top of the next hill we had to turn back.
The signs on the steep steps up the side of the hill made us laugh (once we'd managed to get safely back down again that is)
and the one that had colapsed along with a section of the steps!
I hope this will be our first walk of many and that you have enjoyed seeing it!
