My Walk in Photos: Sawel by John McGuigan

Thanks to John McGuigan for sharing these beautiful images of his walk up Sawel in the Sperrin Mountains with us.

Sawel marks the highest point in Counties Derry and Tyrone and John was walking the mountain as part of his round of the County Tops of Ireland. As can be seen from the photos, John got perfect conditions for his walk. You can see more of John’s photos at

Sawel is one of the County Tops featured in our series of articles on the County Tops.
