MountainViews Walk – Scavenger 5 –October 9th
Well Bleck Cra, for yourself and all others who missed the original ad about the next Scavenger Walk, here it is again! This will indeed be both myself and Brenno's first time to lead a walk. However having being on several before I know the craic will be mighty! Come one, come all.
MountainViews is delighted to announce the next in the occasional series of walks arranged by MV members for MV members. This walk follows an outstandingly successful walk in the Mourne Mountains on August 14th attended by 17 MV members.

Fondly known as ‘Scavenger Walks’, or ‘Scavvies’ in short, the next one will take place in Wicklow on Saturday October 9th. The walk is open to all MountainViews members and is free. The only requirement is that all those attending have the right wet weather clothing and gear and are fit enough for a day in the hills. MV members are invited to meet other like-minded MountainViews members and to enjoy a walk in the high Wicklow hills.

MountainViews members Wicklore and Brenno are leading the walk and you can let them know through the messaging service if you intend to join them on the day. Our intended route is to climb Lugnaquillia (925m) from Baravore car park, via Camenabologue (758m), returning by Cloghernagh (800m) and the zig-zags. The walk is approximately 17kms in total, and a maximum of 7 hours including rests. Total ascent approx 850 metres. This walk would be normally listed as a Grade 2 – suitable for anybody with a reasonable level of fitness.

The terrain in Wicklow can be wet and boggy in places and while not very steep the bog can be tiring. Be warned that the route we are taking up Lugnaquillia (indeed any route up Lug) will have sections of wet and boggy ground. We would like to encourage as many members as possible to join us on the day. From previous experience we can ensure a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and a lot of good conversation and craic.

For those on planning on staying overnight our plan is to base ourselves in Laragh where there is a variety of accommodation to suit all pockets – hotel, B&B’s and the hostel in Glendalough – 2km down the road from Laragh. A word of advice to those not well acquainted with Laragh’s B&B’s – most are a short walk from the village centre –but some are a few km out of the village so check before you book unless you want a late night walk back to your bed. Lynhams is the only hotel (and bar) in Laragh and is in the centre of the village. Excellent post-walk craic is guaranteed, whether you are a seasoned ‘scavenger’ or along on your first walk. Below are links for accommodation:
B&B - http://www.glendalough.connect.ie/pages/bb/BBlinks.html
Hotel - http://www.lynhamsoflaragh.ie/
Hostel - http://www.anoige.ie/hostels/glendaloch
The meeting point is at Glenmalure Lodge (T107 909 on OSI map No.56) at 9:30am on 9th October. From here we will drive the 3 miles to the Baravore car park to prepare for a 10am kick off.

This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
