Lost GPS
If you happen to be climbing up the east face of Slievemore on Achill, keep an eye out for a dropped Garmin GPS which foolishly I clipped on the wrong strap. It is quite steep and my first serious climb in months so I was not going back to look for it...But a gorgeous day, Saturday 21 September.

UK website for mountains
I'll second peter1...walkhighlands.co.uk is very good (specifically for Scotland, unsurprisingly).

I'll even forgive the person on their forums (the forums are excellent, btw) whose response to 'is there an equivalent to walkhighlands for Ireland?'OK was to suggest this very site, and then say 'it's like walkhighlands, but not as good'.

Glen Coe is a fantastic place, have fun.

MountainViews Equivalent in UK?
Hi there,

I'm travelling over to Glencoe for a weekend in November and am just wondering - is there an equivalent site to mountainviews for use in the UK?

It's my first climbing trip abroad, and I'd be delighted to hear any suggestions and recommendations!

Thanks,
Paddy O'Brien

Hike'n bike Kerry's summits
Hi, Anyone could tell me if it is allowed (or tolerated) to climb the mountain tops of Kerry with a bike (eg Tomies and Purple Mountain.) I am aware that some peaks may be difficult to access by bike, but what interests me is if there are any restrictions on cycling.
