Colourful Bray Head trig with Little Sugar Loaf behind (Expand pics)
Overlooked?
Bray Head on the Iveragh Peninsula is mentioned in MountainViews, but not Bray Head in Wicklow, as far as I am aware. That leaves me puzzled. I would have thought the latter had all the attributes for inclusion. It forms a continuous, freestanding chain whose highest point, crowned with a trig pillar (see photo), rises to 240m above the nearby Irish Sea. Roughly two kilometres west of it, the Little Sugar Loaf forms a broadly parallel chain of tops. From a geological point of view, its predominantly pink-coloured quartzite belongs to the same group as that which is to be found on the Howth Peninsula, on the far side of Dublin Bay. In its own south-side setting, that gives it a colourful character all of its own. And from a walkerís point of view, itís a self-contained playground. Link it up with the cliff walk from Bray Town to Greystones and you can have a good four-hour circuit with more scenic interest thrown in than youíll find on many other hills in Ireland whose inclusion is undisputed. The natural place for a listing of Bray Head would be in the Dublin/Wicklow group, but maybe it could find a place in the miniscule East Coast group as another alternative.
