Most comments on Scarr seem to start from Oldbridge so I thought I would add a contribution which begins from the Laragh side. Carparking is available at the forest entrance next to the church in Laragh at T140967 B. From here take the forest track until it crosses the wicklow way at T141972 C. The WW winds through the trees and quickly takes you to the wooden bridge which crosses the Glenmacness River. Once over the bridge the WW continues on a good trail and across some sections of boardwalk which have been installed by Mountain Meithal. You will arrive at a second carpark at T141975 D which strides the R115.

Cross the R115 and continue along the WW as it snakes uphill. As you rise above Paddock Hill the WW continues north towards Oldbridge and Lough Dan - it is at this point at approx T146984 E that you turn off the WW at a large boulder and follow a well worn trail across the shoulder of Paddock Hill. This trail is quite pleasant and presents superb views across Brockagh Mountain, Tonelagee, Camaderry and the surrounding valleys. The going is good and the trail will take you right to the summit cairn of Scarr at 641m.

From the summit cairn you will note there is a large red barn and enclousure visible to the east of scarr along the long spur which juts out in the direction of Annamoe (around area of 'Drummin' as marked on sheet 56). Head directly for the red barn at approximately O144014 F. Another forest trail will take you from the red barn through the spruce plantation (not marked on the map) and directly downhill through farmland to rejoin the WW at O159006 G. Follow the WW back along the third class road to where it turns right up a public road and back across Paddock Hill again. Retrace your steps back to the carpark.

One point of interest - as you climb uphill once more enroute to Paddock Hill you will come across one of the mountain huts built by Mountain Meithal. I am sure the majority of people on this website are familar with the work of Mountain Meithal, but more imofrmation can be found at pathsavers.org - the hut itself is located at approx O149994 H and is designed as a basic shelter to the overnight walker. The shelter has a lean-to roof and is enclosed on three sides, with the front open to the elements. Inside the shelter there is a sweeping brush and visitors logbook. Outside there is a picnic table, enclosed fire ring, and even a water collection system/tank connected to the gutter (all of which can be seen in the photo). It really is testament to the great work carried out by Mountain Meithal. There are a number of other huts now established in Wicklow and further details can be found at pathsavers.org - as you can see from the photo, the day we passed by the hut there was a young man (from Colerado USA of all places) preparing a meal in the fire ring and he assured us he was bunking in the shelter that night - evidence if any was needed that these shelters are a huge success Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/210/comment/6132/
