TRY THE GYES HERE
Alex 92, pleased you are drinking and pursuing women. As independent endeavours they are both worthy. Just a word of caution though: be careful not to mix the two or the girning you refer to later in your post will be but a drop in the bucket. “Dad, are we there yet?”
Here are a couple of suggestions for venues to engage in both. First up, just stay away from all the usual haunts: Ice House on the Glen River; Commedagh Wood; head of the Annalong Wood; Trassey foot of Meelmore. Issue here is these are too easily accessed by the scummies. So you are in a cleft stick: you want easy access but no scum buckets.
Try the following: a few minutes into Commedagh via the fire chute and stile West of the Glen River – over the first main rise find a grassy stretch with fab views down to Newcastle. Or a few mins up the track from Silent Valley Road to above the Buttresses beneath Pigeon Rock – level with good views of the tops to Binnian. Or beneath Chimneyrock from the Midpace burn, crossing and ascending at the first opportunity after a new stile and fence – ie avoid ascending before this or Farmer Giles will chastise you – wonderful views out to sea. A good start for girners. Let us know what you think.
