MountainViews first book. (Expand pics)
A Guide to Irelands Mountain Summits
Context of comment:MountainViews first book available online and in many bookshops.

As members will know, for over a decade, Mountainviews.ie has been providing unique information to hillwalkers on all aspects of exploring and enjoying Ireland's upland areas. It's been a collaborative effort by over 1000 of you, and currently contains over 6000 comments on 1057 mountains and hills on the island of Ireland with around 500 tracks uploaded also. It is the first place to attempt to gather all of the information about Irelands summits in one place. As you know it provides a range of lists allowing users to set themselves goals of varying sorts of difficulty.

While we believe online resources are the backbone of walking information into the future, books aren't going away anytime soon. And this book compiles together a number of lists of Ireland's summits but also the different mountain areas on the island. There are background articles on the history of the lists, summiteering, using MountainViews etc

Specifically the book has the 269 Vandeleur-Lynams, the Arderins, the Hundred Highest and the County Highpoints. These lists include a handy box, which you can tick to indicate you have conquered a particular summit, as well as information on height, ranking, mountain area, county, OSI map and grid reference and prominence.

Collins Press came to us about this book last year. At that point we had already produced a draft version of the book and we were delighted to accept their suggestion that we publish through them.

MountainViews is a voluntary community and any returns from the book will be administered by the committee for the benefit of MountainViews and the sport of hillwalking in Ireland.

By buying the book you are supporting MountainViews. While we only expect realistic returns from this book, these are nevertheless important given that there is no membership fee for the website and no support from the government.

In fact, consider buying a number of books and selling them to your friends or to your club.

It is also possible to order from the publisher here: www.collinspress.ie/a-guide-to-irelands-mountain-summits.html
or Amazon here www.amazon.com/Guide-Irelands-Mountain-Summits-Vandeleur-Lynams/dp/1848891644

Buying this book helps keep MountainViews.ie going.
