Slieve League walk for Mountainiews members
I remember climbing down a 'chimney' on the Faha Ridge in the Brandon range in Kerry. I remember arriving at the summit of Cruach Mor and looking across to the Big Gun in the McGillicuddys Reeks, also in Kerry. I remember 'The most amount of MountainViewers in one spot' as we all clambered onto the small summit atop the rocky tor of Slieve Bearnagh in the Mournes. These were all great days, and these were all MountainViews members and friends walks

This Saturday, 28th May, another of these iconic walks takes places on Slieve League in Donegal. I haven't done this walk yet, but I have heard so much about this fascinating route and legendary scenery. I am looking forward to this exhilarating walk in the company of some of our finest walkers and talkers. If you can, please do come along. It's an opportunity to meet other MountainViewers and enjoy a top quality walk at the same time. I once calculated on one previous such gathering that the assembled mob had between them hiked or climbed 10,000 Irish hills and mountains! That's a lot of experience to draw upon!

Whether you are local to the area, or have the opportunity to come from further afield, please do come along. We welcome old friends and also encourage new members or those considering their first Scavvy walk. You won't be disappointed!

If you're coming along please message Peter Walker on the site so he can sort restaurant numbers for the evening meal.
