Beautiful ride through the Sperrins, even on a damp day. Plenty of nice valleys and undulations providing interesting corners. Surrounded by hills touching the clouds, riding past TV transmitters. Not much traffic at all on a Sunday afternoon but plenty of farms and driveways so need to be careful.

Some short straights but plenty of undulations. The western part of the road has been resurfaced but the eastern part is a bit below average. No major potholes though!

I came from the west coast through wild donegal scenery and this was nearly as good.
