Re: Classifications
weedavie - glad to see you are still following things over here - our current list includes 14 tops of 914m (3000ft) or above:
Carrauntoohil
Beenkeragh
Caher
Cnoc na Péiste
Caher West Top
Maolán Bui
Carrauntoohil Tooth
Cnoc an Chuillin
Brandon Mtn
The Big Gun
Cruach Mhór
L.Coimín Móir Mtn
Lugnaquillia
Galtymore
however this list is constructed on the basis of a 15m prominence only, that is each top need only be 15m above the nearest col. Someday we will revise the database so you can specify a list in terms of the height of a mountain and its prominence.
I'm not sure that the issue of over-used summits is ever going to be as serious here as it is has become in Britain. Be that as it may, MountainViews encourages people to visit the less used places (all 458 as currently classified) of the 500m peaks. Many of the least used, totally trackless places are the most interesting.

And I agree with you, the term "Munro" is a category for Scottish mountains.

Ben Dash: One of my earlier attempts
TommyV less than an hour ago.
Ben Dash was one of my earlier attempts at hill bagging, back in the days when I had no gps and didn't believe I needed a map. I went through some bog that people had bagged turf on before I found...

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV less than an hour ago.
I technically haven't bagged the summit of this hill as it wasn't listed on MV when I did the Ciiffs of Moher walk, but it would be a very small detour to bag it. I was no more than 50 meters from...

Clifden Hill: Didn't bag it
TommyV less than an hour ago.
I drove as far as the point mentioned by Jamessheerin. Nice views over Lough Inchiquin, the drive trhough the trees only add about ten mentres of elevation and lots of briars so I got back in my c...

Cloontohil: My nearest MV hill

This hill is only a few kilometers over the road from my home house. However without Mountain Views website you would scarcely know it's a hill as it is situated in an area of high ground anyway s...

More of a drive than a hike. Well worth it for the views.

The Annapurna Circuit

My daughter, Ciara, has just completed an 11-day trek around the Annapurna Circuit in the Himalayas. She's not a particularly experienced walker, so completing it was quite the achievement. Here's...

Cullaun: A quick bag.
TommyV 2 weeks ago.
Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

What can I say about Mauherslieve? It really is one of those mountains that will have you asking yourself "What am I doing? Started out at the livestock pen mentioned by csd. It is important to no...

Knocknacusha: There and back again
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Peter Walker 3 weeks ago.
You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...

Cooneen Hill: Very average
TommyV 2 weeks ago.
Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
