I'm definitely more agin walking poles than cameras. But pretty pictures of hills don't tell you much. What do you value in a site like this? It's a place for how to do it information.

Is it scrambly, is it messy, what does it give you, are there herds of mad goats. Piccies can illustrate these things but very often don't. You don't have the worst
excesses of some Scottish sites (picture of cairn in mist with accompanying text "Do this on a clear day. you can see farther". On the other hand mostly they
don't have the equivalent of Mr Cra (who seems a few metres short of a summit cairn, but who is at least taking language to places it's not been before. A bit
like someone once took me to Bundoran.)

Maybe photographers should think what they're trying to do - the unrelenting pursuit of the calendar pin-up has a saccharin effect. Go cubist, which might be the
Cra effect (I know I'm reaching here.) Or keep it functional (which certainly a number of your own illustrations get full marks on.)

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size
Aidy 3 days ago.
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...
