Puffin and Scarriff Island trip 23rd July
On Saturday 23rd July a merry band of MountainViewers will be joined by members of Birdwatch Ireland to visit two Kerry Islands. These are Puffin and Scarriff Islands and both are listed on MountainViews as summits due to their prominence (both over 150 metres). Neither island has been claimed as climbed by any MountainViews members, so this specially arranged trip is a very rare opportunity to visit the islands and explore them. There are no scheduled sailings available to visit and land on these islands, so this really is a rare opportunity to make the pioneering journey out to climb these hills.

There are 3 places available at €75 per head. The trip is on Saturday 23rd July, departing Portmagee, Kerry at 9am. If the weather is too dangerous we don’t go and we don’t pay. But if it is just typical rainy/cloudy conditions we are committed to sailing and paying.

To book your place in the MountainViews history books, and for the chance to take part in a bit of modern day pioneering, email me at wicklore@gmail.com. It’s strictly first come first served, and if you book a place you have to come along. (The rest of us don’t want to have to fork out the cost of your place!).
A total of 4 hours sailing to and from the islands, with about 2 hours spent landed on each. So grab your rain coat and the sea sickness tablets and off we go!

Topped Mountain: Short & simple
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A simple little Binnion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need yo...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
