Jim Ryan's Books (Expand pics)
High and Low Walks
Just a few words on the new Collins Walk Books. I rate Jim Ryan's previous publication "Carrauntoohil and the MacGillyCuddy's Reeks" best ever Irish Guide Book for its thoroughness in dealing with the Reeks. I found that mountain range a bit intimidating and the Ryan lines were invaluable for preparation. Very very helpful. I have no doubt that his new book (Collins 2012 - soon to be published) will be every bit as good BUT it is very clearly aimed at the low level walker, and consequently will be of little or no interest to me as long as I have the use of my anatomy for ascent. According to the publisher: "Not only has Jim Ryan compiled eighteen of Killarney’s most interesting low-level walks, he has provided excellent photographs, precise directions and the length, time and difficulties with each. Each walk has a map indicating important features. Walks vary in duration from an hour to a day, from flat walking to more challenging rambles. Four of the walks are nature trails that follow markers, with the flora, fauna and landscape at each described. Jim takes readers through the town of Killarney, out to Muckross and Torc, down to Ross Island, and on peaceful strolls in the countryside. One of the walks includes a boat trip through Killarney’s lakes. Woven into the route descriptions are historical notes, anecdotes, folklore and natural history to add to the walker’s enjoyment."

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size
Aidy 5 days ago.
A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
