Information board with maps at the picnic site
We stopped along the way to listen to birdsong and enjoy the lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
From the mountain top we enjoyed clear views of the Co. Louth coastline and the Mourne mountains.
Loughanleagh mountain is a lovely location for a walk at any time of year and there is the possibility of seeing snow bunting while walking in the area at migration time or over the winter months.
On our return to Bailieborough we carried out a swift survey to help us locate breeding sites for this species and we hope to erect some nest boxes in the area for the next breeding season.
