Vandals in Gleniff
Apologies in advance for the rant but I had the misfortune to come across three seemingly abandoned teenage boys at the head of Gleniff Valley on Monday that were busy literally dismantling one of the old buildings stone by stone and throwing fragments of our fragile built history into the field beyond. Thankfully it was not the iconic schoolhouse, but rather a smaller structure very close to that point.

Upon reading these lads the riot act (in the name of anyone with any appreciation for anything) I was surprisingly informed that their parents were off "climbing the mountain" and that they'd been left to their own devices. The devil clearly finds work for idle hands.

If anyone of these parents uses MountainViews I'd appreciate it if you can explain to your children the values of "leave no trace"!

I was also told the parents were not the brave souls that I could see pluckily clutching turf on the 45+ degree ascent to Diarmuid and Grainne's cave in the east face of Annacoona/Slievemore. If anyone has any tales of doing likewise I'm sure it would be very interesting but I certainly concluded that the gradient on the final approach would mean that the cave is beyond the reach of the humble hillwalker, certainly ones that want to descend unharmed!

Folks,
A friend of mine lost his iPhone near the parking spot at the bridge at Lough Cloon. If you found it send me a message please.
Many thanks

Festivals?
In the spirit of complete indolence and psychopathic impatience with online info, perhaps some helpful people could short circuit my angst and advise if they know of any walking festivals likely to survive and happen during the remains of this year.
Thank you in advance.

Conigar SW Top - New Arderin Beg
New Arderin Beg ... following advice from David Guenot and my visit this weekend, we have concluded that Conigar Sw Top meets the map based criteria for inclusion in the Arderin Beg list. Accordingly it has been added to the site.

@Hugh Mangan
Hi Hugh. I suggest a circuit from Taylor's Three Rock pub. From Taylor's walk along the southern boundary of Marlay Park, then follow the Wicklow Way up to Kilmashoge car park. Conti use to follow the Wicklow Way to the col between Fairy Castle and Tibradden. From the col head up to Fairy Castle, then take the north track down past the big communication aerials on the north side of Fairy Castle. Head down to the Three Rock car park then road and path to Taylor's Three Rock Hotel. A few hours at a good pace. Nearly all path, road, forest track and good track.

Night Time Hike
Hi - can anyone can suggest a good night time walk in and around Dublin/North Wicklow? Looking for a looped walk or an out and back. Moderate difficulty, a few hours approx, as doing with my kids (early teens). I know I can probably do any of the marked walks but there be some more suitable, with better views etc. Thanks!

Covid 19 & 2KM Radiu
Great question moggy40

Can we assume that this 2k must be centred on a regular dwelling place.

Covid 19 & 2KM Radius
Given that we are all restricted to a 2KM radius for exercise activity, where in Ireland would be the best place to be located, your starting point for your walk must be within your radius, and be able to bag as many tops as possible
