SCAVENGER WALK 4. A HIGH POINT.
After a bit of a to-do I have snared the dark daw, fired him into a cage and covered it in black cloth. So we and today’s subject are protected from his venom. Bleck Cra of course and the subject: Scavenger Walk 4. There is only one word adequately describes the Scavenger Walk 4 of Sat 14th July. “scuse me folks he is babbling something about “tropical sun … seventeen smiley-faced Scavvies … mountainviews worthies and unworthies … magnificent walk … innocent new faces … more ladies yum … old faces too and some very old faces” As I was saying – only one word describes Scavvy 4. Nope – he’s off again “craic mighty … fine pace … wonderful team ... stunning scenery … no fatbums.” Leave it out Cra “evening food and drink great … Messrs Guinness, Concha and Toro love us … 3.30am lights out … and this revelry only interrupted by the heart-rending misery of Scavvies departing for home or early next day … such wailing and hugging” Yes and the one word that describes Scav4U is? But yet more cra-babble “two contenders for the meandering man prize … Sunday, a.m. never again … and then there were 4 … successful tick box walk to bag Chimneyrock or Rocky … a recce at the swish Slieve Donard hotel (again) and sad farewells” And the one word that describes Scavenger Walk 4 is ….. “EXCEPTIONAL”. Thank you Scavvies all for making this weekend exceptional, all particularly and especially particularly the bold Jackill for co-running this fab gig. Scavengers 4 were: bleck cra, brenno, dbloke with Pete, dhmiriam with Tom, dolphin, jackill, kernowclimber, mcrtchly, ptempan, simon3, wicklore. Guests: from Aonach ar Siul club Aidan and Noel; from The Wee Binnians club Julie and Eamonn. Alright Cra, you can come out again.

Curra Hill: Cloudy Climb

Fantastic walk, personally feel it's best starting your approach from Glenbeigh village and heading up through the forest (663 908) as it's quite well signposted. Once leaving the cover of the tre...
