Scavs High on Commedagh (Expand pics)
SCAV4U
Reference ol’ wine drinker Jackill’s exhortation for me to add anything to his treatise on Scavvy Walking, firstly it is all guff. For a start when he writes of meeting Simon, Simon is a concept – at least that’s what he tells me. Simon, that is. Next the name “Scavvy” derives from Jacky’s routine of raking about dustbins for his dinner and mine of dining on dead hillwalkers. It’s not rocket science. See how he uses “accident” and “O’Shea’s” in the same breath. And all that stuff about love and peace? Sure - but only if you give him a biscuit. Otherwise, just check your footing. Anyway as the Northern Ireland tourist boys used to say (a tad self-consciously), “you won’t know if you don’t go” and there is already idle talk of Scavvy Four – and it doesn’t come more idle than from these two – in the magical, mystical and generally fluffy Mourne Mountains of Norn Irn, TBD but likely 14/15th ish August this year of our Lord Vader 2010. It will be a middling hike of circa 5-to-6 hours with a total ascent of around 1800ms and comfortable for Grades 1 and 2 (A and B); endless opportunities to meet other mviewers (it’s like a cruise – you can’t get off it), and some wines and beers afterwards – at last. So put it in your diary now. Details will follow. For more information on what a Scavvy Walk is, see Jackill’s gushing piece 17th May 2010 title: Scavvys – Members Meet Up - which contrarily also means non-members, non-Irish (which nearly means me), non-mountaineers and some English people like Cornishmen.

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size

A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
