Horse Riding on the Railway Track
On our horse, Inishowen, we head towards the impressive Muckish Mountain. Traversing old tracks built one hundred and fifty years ago during the famine takes us into eerie silence, only horses can use the tracks as they were originally built for them. Nowadays they are overgrown but serve our purpose very well. As we get closer to this mountain, we come into the now dismantled Falcarragh-Burtonport railway, made famous by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie in the film 'The Railway Man'. The surface is ideal for long canters.
