SCAVENGER WALK 7 MOURNES
Scavenger Walk 7 “ScavviesHeaven”
Mourne Mountains Co Down
Sat August 27th 2011

EVERYONE WELCOME - FREE NO CHARGE GRATIS

Plan and times (ALL TBC)

9am sharp
Carricklittle Carpark
Park on road if full.
Grid Ref: 345220
(Kilkeel Road from Newcastle – Newcastle Road from Kilkeel)
To Quarter Road at Petrol Station.
374211
Follow Quarter Road through 90 degree left, over Dunnywater Bridge – a minute and you’re there.)

WALK
Horseshoe Route around Annalong Valley – to include a contour track around Cove Mountain and also the Annalong Buttress.
Top/s TBC may include Lamagan, Donard, Chimneyrock, Rocky.
Return by head of Annalong wood to Carricklittle carpark.

A 6 hour-ish walk.

5pm
Repare to O’Hares Bar Newcastle
(Best to leave cars at your lodgings if in the town and walk to pub – town is 10 min walk from one end to the other).

6pm
Scatter to various lodgings to hose down and apply lippo (the latter is not compulsory for gentlemen).

7.30pm
Meet at Hugh McCanns Restaurant (at O’Hare’s Bar) for medium priced good quality grub.

Thereafter to watering holes with music.

For most of us, this is an overnight – so get booked into somewhere soon.
There are a couple of dear hotels if that is your bag – the Slieve Donard is spectacularly located on the shore,
Also a few good B&Bs in the town.
And also the Yoof Hostel at circa 15 sterling for basic stuff but good location.

Scavenger Walks are tried, tested and successful events. The organisers are experienced walkers at Grade 1 levels and above.
However matters of personal safety, responsibility, insurance etc are up to you and neither mountainviews nor the organisers can take any responsibility.

This walk is suitable for grades from high Grade 2 to Grade 1.
For walkers who regularly complete a 5+ hours walk at reasonable pace.
Equivalent to a Walking Festival Grade 1 walk.

NB it is important that the group travels at a steady speed without delays so that it is an enjoyable experience for everyone.
If you are not sure about your level, drop me an email and we can talk.
The organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to the walk if they feel it would impinge on safety and/or enjoyment of other walkers.

Walkers at this level know the right kit to bring so bring it please.

(Apologies if this sounds a bit stuffed-shirt. Au contraire, it is very defo not.)

Mountainviewers, friends and everyone welcome.
We look forward to seeing old friends – and a special welcome to new Scavvies.

Leaders to be Bleck Cra and Jackill
Email: douglasreid@utvinternet.com
Tel/text: (UK)07745604101
If you intend coming along, let me know please.

P.S. We like to have a leader in the middle tasked to take anyone off on request. A patient, gentle-natured soul who doesn’t mind giving up his/her walk to help a walker make an early trip to the pub.
If you are an experienced Mournes walker and fancy the role, let me know please.)
