  1. Lovely pictures, all those rich colours. Well done with the close-ups of the Blue Stack Granite; it looks as if it might be showing signs of being scraped by a passing ice-sheet. I am curious about the peat hags – what exactly are they and how did they get like that – like little islands?

  2. Thanks Jessica. The peat hags are exactly like little islands. There are different theories about how they formed. Some think its damage caused by land management, sheep etc. Others think its a natural process caused by soil saturation making the peat shear away. Usually, there is a mass of them together, which is torturous to walk through. The tenth photo down in this post – https://aidymcglynn.wordpress.com/2014/02/15/croaghnameal/ has an example of them en masse, although they’re usually bigger than this.
