MountainViews Walk on 9th October
The date of the next MountainViews Walk (Scavvy 5) is fast approaching! This is on Saturday 9th October in Glenmalure, and we plan to hike Lugnaquillia from Baravore via the Table Track and Camenabologue. We will return via Cloghernagh and the zig-zags. There will be one guided opt-out point along the way via Fraughan Rock Glen for those who need it. Otherwise we hope all will be prepared for an 18km walk through bog and heather to the highest point in Ireland outside of Kerry!

We have had excellent interest from many MountainViews members, and we hope to see as many of our fellow walkers as possible on the day. We will be celebrating in Lynhams of Laragh afterwards, and hope many of you can stay for this also! We are meeting at the Glenmalure Lodge at 9:30am on the 9th October, with a 10am start at Baravore. Directions to the Glenmalure Lodge from all points of Ireland are below. Further details about the walk can be found on page 2 of the General Forum, or by contacting wicklore or Brenno via the messaging service.

From North or North West of Ireland

M1 or M3 all the way to M50. Follow the M50 southbound all the way around Dublin until you reach the M11/N11. At Kilmacanoge (just below Great Sugar Loaf), look for signs for the R755 signposted Roundwood/Glendalough and take this exit just after the Topaz station. Go over the motorway and follow the R755. Go straight through Roundwood and when you reach Laragh turn left at Lynhams Hotel. After about a 0.7km, there is a right turn signposted Aghavannagh/Glenmalure. After about 7km come to a small crossroads at the bottom of a steep hill. This is Drumgoff crossroads – Glenmalure Lodge is just there after you turn left at the crossroads.

From the West of Ireland

M4/N4/M6/N6 all the way to M50 – then same route

From the South or South West of Ireland

M7 or M8 as far as Junction 12 – follows R413 and R412 for Kilcullen, Ballymore Eustace, then follow R411, at crossroads turn right onto N81 and after 12.5km take a left turn onto R756 up to the Wicklow Gap (signposted Holywood/Glendalough). At bottom of Wicklow Gap road take left turn into Laragh, then right at Lynhams Hotel and follow rest of route detailed above.
(alternatively take the M11/N11 from Wexford to Kilmacanoge and take R755 as described above to Roundwood/Laragh)
