Glenveagh National ParkSeptember 6, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C
The day starts with a dive into the nature. After a half-hour drive in the hills, we reach a very isolated place which seems to have been cut off from the rest of the world. It's the Glenveagh National Park!
The park covers over 17.000 hectares of lakes, creeks and mountains covered with bog, a substance created by the decomposition of dead plants and trees. 🌳☘️🌱🍃
On the shore of the main lake stands a castle, where we have a guided tour booked for 11am. Which means that we have over an hour to get there. Hence we decide to walk rather than taking the shuttle bus departing from the visitor centre.
It turns out to be a great idea: the scenery is amazing thanks to its untouched wilderness, while the gloomy weather gives it an additional touch of mystery. If it were not for the ice-cold wind that is freezing us down to the bones, it would be absolutely a dream... ❄️❄️❄️Read more
