  • We took this road back to Belfast due to weather conditions,scenery very similar to the glencoe pass in Scotland,wild and dark not somewhere I,d like to break down.  more »
  • This is a very picturesque area of Donegal, and my rating is in reference to it's beauty alone, as I have to warn against going in bad weather. We very driving from Slieve League area through Glengesh...  more »

  • It look beautiful in summer, but we were here in winter, and it can be scary in snowy weather. We were just driving towards the pass when we got caught in a snowstorm. The road became very slippery and our car kept skidding off the road towards the side. We were in first gear and kept braking until we got to those two tight s-shaped turns on the slope. It was getting dark and we decided it was too dangerous to drive in those weather conditions because if we had skidded off the road, we would have slid off the side of the mountain. We ended up inching our way down that pass, but it was very scary. I'd definitely recommend thus beautiful place in summer but in winter it can turn into a scary experience, unless you're familiar with the area and have winter tyres on.
  • Tough ride up on the bike but totally worth it for the amazing views.
  • Not tha bad view but nothing special, can't find any walks into the mountains.
  • Lovely spot even on a wild and wet January day
  • Resembles to places with folklore legends. The view feels like being in the womb of valleys.
