Map Reading
Hi all. I've only recently discovered the joys of hill walking. So far I've braved a few hills around the west Wicklow area such as Black hill, Mullaghcleevaun, Sorrell hill, Powerscourt etc. I did the Wicklow way in my teens (nearly 20 years ago) and I'm hoping to do it again this summer. My only concern is my map reading skills which are very basic. Usually when I'm walking I love to go off the beaten track and so far I've managed to find my way back but getting lost is inevitable. I'm just wondering is there any good map reading books anyone could recommend or how should I go about brushing up my skills? Thanks.

The Loop walks here are well signposted, it's a great idea to go out onto each headland.

Buckaun East: Cliffy north edge.
simon3 a day ago.
This is a picture of Buckaun East taken from the valley below.. Obviously the safest way to go up and down this is to the left or south of the ridge.
