wee wet ulster stone
alas my friend bleck if you were to disappear under that wee wet ulster stone - the Mournes would not be the same without that jovial spirit you have, pretty though the stone may be! This website ensures that everybody can enjoy our mountains, but the books full of photos of mountains that prop up my TV that airs travel and nature programmes, sparked a smouldering desire to explore mountains further afield, a raging inferno ensued lapping against my heart, my love of Djouce and the Brandy Pad ensured I would go one day somewhere different, so I tapped walking holidays in to the search engine and up popped a multitude of choices - yes little me, me of the Dublin suburbs, and Wicklow hills found myself suddenly on a plane to an unknown shore - that was 2002! Alas my boots will have to retire they have a new career of keeping foot in stirrup, but they have explored desert and glacier with me and it's so hard to part with a good pair of slippers! I just wanted to let you all know that the World is out there, and as I stood beneath those incredible famous peaks, I thought to myself I must let those on mountain views know, cuz we don't have this at home! If anybody is thinking about travelling overseas take the pressure off and leave as much as possible to the experts - I can recommend Sherpa and New Experiences - have a look at their websites there might be something there you'd like to try. Next year for me? The Atlas in North Africa!!

Fantastic walk, personally feel it's best starting your approach from Glenbeigh village and heading up through the forest as it's quite well signposted. Once leaving the cover of the trees, we wer...

An easy to access and navigate hill, well worth it for its central position and views in every direction. Park as previously suggested at L8530 4820 and head north east before swinging north. The ...

Cnoc Mordáin: Long Connemara Summer Evening

Though the road near L88003920 appears unfenced you will encounter a fence very soon after leaving the road. This fence extends along this back road, Bothar na Scrathóg and keeps cattle in typical...

Pleasantly surprised by this, could clearly see Lugnaquilla and Croaghanmoira, as well as numerous other summits, slightly awkward entry into the fields just west of the forest which don't appear ...
