P.S.
“Today we are in the beautiful highlands of Neverland. To the West, the Lakes of Wine, East, the Marshes of Mallow and rising dramatically behind us, the Mountains of Molehill. And it is from here today we bring you our working-dog trials. Will they separate the sheep from the goats? Dhmiriam is a fine animal, slight, perfectly formed and skilful. But is she skilled enough to gather up these flockers? “Bah,” says one: “GPS Indeed!” “Bah,” says another: “Map and Compass indeed!” Can they be lifted from the far bog, driven and penned in our allotted span? Don’t miss tomorrow same time, same place “Pigs can fly”. And dhmiriam’s off on the outrun. “Come by, come by,” but wee davie has shed from the flock. He seems to be navigating by the stars - and what’s this? Now he’s eating grass! Tch and there goes padodes too; she’s heading all the way back down the track to lesson 1. Oh no - now Simon - had enough snapping at his flanks and he’s just taken off. Should be OK though - we can track his chip from the space station. And so they are scattered to the 4 corners of the Earth: Sorth, Nouth, Weast and Est.”Anyone want a Garmin Summit secondhand? In this wild and stormy jaunt up the hill and down it, you may sometimes be lost …. and sometimes found. If you think a GPS can do it for you, one's yours for free to find out. Apply to Bleck Cra …… once I’ve finished off this sheep.

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy 23 hours ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...

Tonelagee: The perfect beginner's mountain
Colin Murphy a day ago.
Besides crossing Glenmacnass River at the start and end, (which has seen many an unfortunate walker ascend in soggy boots) Tonelagee is a pleasant and relatively easy climb from the carpark near t...
