Walking suggestions, help please
Hello. My wife comes from the north and so I have enjoyed many happy times in the Mournes, alone, with family and in some of the walking festivals (which if you haven't tried them I can recommend - with a hearty breakfast at Castlewellan of course).
Anyway, we are going to be in our campervan at Donard, to the west of the Wicklow mountains soon. Looking on MountainViews, I was a bit concerned to see that some of the routes near there are a bit churned up by quad bikes and so on.
So, I'd really appreciate suggestions from anyone for good walks in that area (I'm fit, experienced, with good gear) with good aesthetic appeal too please.
After Donard we're heading north west (not as far as Donegal) so any suggestions over that way would be much appreciated.
Then we'll be across to the Mournes - yes I can't stay away. A favourite approach is up via Hares Gap then, as the mood takes, left, right or straight ahead (though I'm not a fan of the bog of Donard!) to then loop round to the woods above Annalong and a pint or two in the Harbour Bar to round things off.

This poor old trig has keeled over at the Slievboy mast compound. Did it fall or was it pushed? Who knows, perhaps the upside-down beer label (visible in the foreground of the picture) provides a ...

Thanks to forest clearing, the approach to this top has been eased considerably. Walk along the forest track for about 1km to O007 121. One the left is a narrow but clearly visible track ascending...

Slieveroe: Take the long view
Colin Murphy a week ago.
Slieveroe may not be the most exciting of tops, (unless you call being torn to shreds by gorse exciting) but it does have one saving grace - it presents a wonderful view of the Blessington Lakes. ...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.
