Strange Trig Pillar in Donegal! (Expand pics)
In pursuit of hills
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments about completing the County Tops and reaching 300 summits! It wasn’t that long ago that I was happy to simply walk in Wicklow and wondering what all this ‘bagging’ was about. Many people are happy to stick with familiar hills and ranges, and some might frown upon hill-bagging as an activity. There is a danger of bagging becoming ‘soul less’ as the hunt for new summits could become the objective as opposed to wanting to visit, explore and enjoy the hill for its own sake. I always try to get the most from visiting a hill or mountain, and I have been lucky in coming across many surprising and interesting things as well as having fantastic experiences overall. I also try to bring as much information back to MountainViews as possible, and will share any new routes, experiences and views that have not already been posted. In turn I have walked in the footsteps of countless other MountainViews members who have also shared their knowledge and experiences with this community. Where else but on MountainViews would you discover where to find a teddy bear strapped to a chair set into the ground on a hilltop? Or where to go to see the tallest trig pillar in Ireland?!!

Reaching hundreds of summits isn’t the significant thing in itself – it’s about the summits visited and the fantastic things I have seen, experienced and learned. I hope my contributions have inspired or encouraged others to explore a new place or visit a new hill. So whether you are on your first few summits or only just considering taking up the activity, I hope to see you in the hills soon!

Similar to the other contributors, this is not a single summit day out. I did it after Colly. It's an hour or so with a coffee break. Start at the Ballaghasheen pass (spectacular drive in & out) a...

I am sure like many of you, especially simoburn, that the addition of the Arderin Begs while technically needed, added loads more summits to climb. This one is, well, a real hard sell. I was tryin...
