Reference SDillmore query ......... Take the dog Ess: everyone else does, increasingly and arguably to extremes. It can be quite amusing watching a Doberman sucking the innards out of a Yorkie or better still mistaking a Jack Russell for one. The issue with the dog in these parts, is the sheep - now it is arguable which has more rights: the poodle or the blackface. If the creature is biddable and understands “no”, meaning very sore ribs, there are no restrictions, other than on Batts land amongst the Hilltown Mournes where Batt clearly specifies no mutts - although I have seen a bloke with 3 Boxers loose on Slievemoughanmore. I suspect it might be bad to take a dog into the Sperrins, in that it is generally bad just to be in the Sperrins. I have 2 personal motley views on the matter: first that dogs and hills go together but second that this only applies to trained beasts and must exclude coiffured stars on extendable leads. You should have no trouble until Rover bites a sheep, whereupon you will be knee deep in it.

Hey all. Being new to hillwalking here (I was born and raised in the U.S.), I was curious as to what the general policy was involving taking a dog along during walking, as the bulk of it is on private land. I haven't seen anything to forbid it, but I figured I should get some opinions from those in the know.

Thanks,
William

"A wisp of the Mournes." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: A wisp of the Mournes. (Contract pics)

One cold January day this was the view of Slieve Donard (850m, right) and Slieve Commedagh (767m) in the Mourne Mountains. It was taken from Butter Mountain in the Wicklow Mountains, some 112 km south. The line of sight goes directly across Dublin city and later Dundalk Bay. At first when we saw this, it seemed like a curiously shaped cloud. Haze completely obscures the other Mournes so these two summits with a light winter dusting float surreally in space.

Broaghnabinnia: Access in Black Valley to Broaghnabinnea and Stumpa Dulaigh
Val Jones a day ago.
A shame. We climbed Stumpa Dulaigh from there last year and met the farmer on our way back, just at Lough Reagh. He seemed nice enough - maybe something happened this year?
