THE BONES OF SCAVENGER 4
SCAVENGER WALK 4
Saturday 14th August 2010 - from 9.30am
Trassey Track Nr Bryansford by Newcastle Co Down, Northern Ireland.

Mountainviewers and others, mountain get-together. Chance to meet other mountainviewers.
Viewers and absolutely everyone else welcome.

Grade 2 hillwalk including 2X700ms tops in the Eastern Mournes, Co Down.
Format - Meet, walk, pub, eat. Sunday more walks TBD on Sat over pints. Optional.

Sat 14th August Meet 9.30am Trassey Track car park.
From the North - Hilltown Road out of Bryansford - Pass Tollymore Outdoor Centre - views of mountains to your left - keep eyes peeled, Trassey Road drops down to left at white house
below level of road. Over hairpin bridge and granite car park to left - if full you can park out on road.
From the South you come by Newry to Hilltown, thence towards Newcastle. If you arrive in Bryansford you have gone too far and the above applies. Sure if you get lost you will soon get unlost. It's the way it goes.

Jaunt to Hare's Gap and thereon to mountains.

The return will be back to Trassey car park and thence to watering holes in Newcastle Co Down.

Jackill and I will lead this/these walks (J doesn't know this yet, so if he can't make it, a hologram wil be supplied). We are seasoned hillwalkers: me seasoned by too many years on the planet
and Jackill by truckloads of dear wine - but neither of us are qualified (in anything) so the deal is you look after your own safety and everything else and any misfortunes on or pertaining to the day/s, you take up with your insurers and not with us or in fact in any way with mountainviews.

This is likely to be a very good gig. Good spot, good walk, good craic and good company. So avoid disappointment and bung it in your diary now.

For further stuff, Contact me Bleck Cra on douglasreid@utvinternet.com

Pee Ess - if you are coming any distance, worth checking out accommodation in Newcastle and such. Endless choice - from Slieve Donard posh hotel which is fab, to YMCA which incidentally is also fab - and lots in between, but defo best to book ahead.
