Suggestions for Ring of Gullion
Hi Cra, I'm not "from these parts", but I am familiar with some of the hills that make up the ring-dyke. Croslieve is a beautiful walk, with beautiful views, easily done from the SE (sorry for lack of grid ref, but the house we started from is just off map 29). Tievecrom seems easy, but dense undergrowth in the final 250m make it an out-and-out SOB, bramble-bashers of some kind are a must. That said, the view is also very pretty, though not quite as open as from Croslieve. If you do Tievecrom, I'd recommend starting from J024146, then pick up the forest track which loops around the north side of the summit, then strike off the path from J023157 heading southwards and just hope for the best. Camlough Mountain is eminently doable, though a little boggy and heathery. I'd start from Corrinshigo on the NE flanks and leave the road around J054250. Sturgan Mountain (Sugarloaf Hill) and Feede Mountain look like they have potential too, but I've never tried them. Ádh mór, Paul
