Mount Brandon
May 13th and the optimistic weather forecast over Mount Brandon was spot on !!
Not a cloud in the sky as the three of us,Tom, Nick & Michael, made our way to the Summit of Brandon from Baile Breac via Cosan na Naomh.
A magnificent blue & totally sunny day day provided stunning views over a panorama of 360 degrees from the cross at the top .
For once not a sign of fog nor mist on Mount Brandon! . From the summit at 953m (Ireland’s second highest peak outside of the Reeks), a clear blue vista gave us wonderful views of the Blaskets, Skelligs, Smerwick harbour ,Three Sisters, Maharees, Pater Noster lakes, Cloghane, Fermoyle beach and Tralee Bay, with the nearby high mountain peaks adding a patchwork of contrasting colours and ridges against the clear blue sky. It was a breathtaking sight ,not to be forgotten, and well worth the effort of the fairly steep ascent, especially towards the top. A total of 9.5 km and a wonderful hike , with superlative views, and one that will have be repeated over the coming months when the summer sun comes out yet again over the Dingle peninsula.!

Lough Curra - 14/05/2019 - 05:17
There was white horses and they were comin' at me at a pace now
And there was a blue sirocco blowin' cold into my face
The sun was risin' on the other side of the ridges.....

And it was almost like The Hothouse Flowers were in attendance

Car window smashed
Returned to my car on the R440 between Kinnity and Mountrath while climbing in the Slieve Blooms to find my driver side window smashed to bits. Clove compartment open but nothing taken as nothing valuable left. Keep safe fellow walkers

Mournes Mountainviews walk
A small but select group of Mountainviews met for a walk in Newcastle Co Down last Saturday 6th April. The low clouds that were covering Slieve Donard at 9.30am lifted by 10am to give us a wonderful sunny day with amazing views. Having done most of the hard work with an ascent over Thomas's mountain to Slieve Donard we decided to extend the original planned walk to make the most of the perfect conditions. Following the wall from the summit towards the Bog of Donard we followed the Brandy Pad around the base of Commedagh before ascending to Slieve Corragh and on to Slieve Commedagh. Returning to Newcastle along the shoulder of Commedagh looking down to the Glen River.
Well earned refreshments were enjoyed in McHugh's bar and restaurant following the walk. It was a most enjoyable way to spend a Saturday.

Picture: Funningsfjørður at dawn (Contract pics)

Sea to Summits
The jaw dropping view from Middagsfjall Ridge overlooking Funningsfjørður and the rugged and mountainous interior of the island of Eysturoy in the Faroe Islands. On the far left rise the mountains on the islands of Kalsoy and Kunoy. The centre is dominated by the spiky Sandfelli (Oyndarfjørður) Massif rising to 754 metres, and on the far right rises the pyramid-shaped Húsafjall (695 metres). We climbed this steep ridge in the twilight to get this view over Funningsfjørður at dawn. The mountains had received a dusting of snow overnight, and the temperature was round freezing, with a fierce wind giving a wind-chill of about -10 °C. Although the dawn was somewhat muted, we were delighted with this image, created from three horizontal wide angle shots.
