Scavvy 4 - a jolly good show!
For those of you who didn't manage to get to Scavvy 4 for whatever reason, you missed a fab day out led by our feathered friend, Cra and canine chum, Jackill. There was a jolly good show of fellow Mountainviewers; fair weather was delivered (apparently to order); Cra's legendary craic was much in evidence throughout the day and Jackill showed those of us yet to bag 100 or more peaks the way by claiming his 300th, atop the rocky tor of Slieve Bearnagh. And then let himself down badly by flashing his leg. Oh Dear!!

This was the first Scavvy outing mcrtchly and I had participated in and we have one of the shiny new MV badges each to prove it - Simon is a hard man to say 'no' to after all - but Wicklore showed impressive signs of being able to flog sun beds to the Arabs in the Trassey Car Park!!! Many and sincere thanks to Bleck Cra and Jackill for arranging this get together and to all of those who showed for their excellent company. Bring on Scavvy 5!!!

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...

Geo's directions are spot on. At the aforementioned Coilte forest entrance there is a sign staing no unauthorized vehicles beyond this point as the gate may close at any point. However as the Lazy...
