Climbing Muckish
Hello Ostros
Both of these routes are very familiar to me. While the Miners track route is the most satisfying it is very precipitous up a winding path with at least one metal ladder. It is not a route for high wind and rain. It is also the most direct way to the top and is well known as the start of the route of the former Glover Highlander walk. The track from Muckish Gap is by far the safest route and in the early part of the climb is a bit of a slog. It has the advantage that it takes you along the full length of the Muckish ridge and takes you past the large central cairn before you climb to the summit cairn and trig pillar. There is also a cross further along the summit ridge with fine views. I have climbed this route with my grand children aged 7 and 9. Enjoy your climb whichever route you decide to take

Binn Mhairg: A well worthwhile but neglected scramble
IainT a week ago.
The quartzite slabs on the NE flank of Binn Mhairg make a good scramble, one of the best in the Maum Turks. They are reachable by traversing round from the Mam Ean track, pathless but largely gras...
