FREEDOM THEY CAN'T TAKE AWAY: BRIDGE THEY CAN
Davie I agree with you and time has been cruel to me – so I could probably slip under the fence back into Scotland the Brave – unrecognised. We shall see.
I do not disagree with anything you write and I am mindful that in a few years the disruption will be forgotten and just as you describe, I and everyone else (at that confused age) will swear these edifices have been there since Queen Maebh – much as we shall swear the earth is flat and John Lennon was the Tsar of Russia, sort of thing ish nurse.
That written and conceded, we always need whistleblowers and evangelists to put manners on the baddies. You are right – the thing is a windmill (and doubtless they will find an imperative to build one of these too …) but if the enthusiasm to go round and round at full speed (entirely self-propelled) can in any way be dampened, I am up for it. If it means one ugly bridge doesn’t get built or one less useless track, I see that as some success.
It behoves us to look after the things that give us most pleasure and to remind ourselves what it is about the mountains we love - and should we need reminded…., it is the wildness and the absence of human interference.
A friend fell on ice on Sunday coming off the new Binnian track. I quote her message to me – “Slipped on the path leading off Binnian heading towards the Blue Lough bloody death traps those paths.”
Oh for a law suit……

I saw this hill while climbing Birreencorragh earlier in the day and I was struck by its shape when viewed from the East. In geological terms I think its a 'roche moutonnée', a hill or rock shaped...

Leam Hill: Thou shalt not pass

There is a rather new and large sign on the gate of the track that runs from the rent a cottage scheme that proclaims "Private Property, Trespassers will be Prosecuted". I'm afraid Fergalh's rout...

Coomataggart: As seen from the NE
Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
Coomataggart as seen from Lackbane. The hill looks quite interesting from this vantage - the actual summit is a disappointment. The high point can be seen on the far left of the curving hilltop.

Lackabaun: Dull top with little to recommend
Colin Murphy 4 days ago.
This is an unremarkable summit in every sense. The trudge to it along the ridge that runs from SW to NE is a tedious one, uneven bog covered in heather, although the slope is very gentle. The summ...
