I Roving Acceptable Track
If you can forgive the obvious grammatical error in the title piece, you will soon find it is apt....

As I read the continuing pleasantries between the Captain and Bleck Cra, I am filled with joy at the thought of the upcoming Scavenger 5 MountainViews walk on 9th October. I can't wait to hear several hours of this moral, philosophical and/or salacious chat as we tramp for 7 hours through Wicklows finest upland quagmire. As the last Scavvy walk proved, you can take a bunch of relative strangers and make great conversation! It will be great for jackill to have an ally in the Captain in his efforts to keep Cra under control. But if the going gets tough Bleck Cra will turn on his turbo chargers (fuelled by air and nothing more) and take off into the Wicklow wilds.
As if to prove the Captain and the Cra are destined to walk together, I can reveal that an anagram of their two names combined is in fact "I roving acceptable track". I hope that both they and all our other friends on the day will find that we are indeed roving an acceptable track.

So once again, all welcome on 9th October, meeting at Glenmalure Lodge at 9:30am to travel to the starting point. A 7 hour hike taking in Lugnaquillia, so wet gear and good humour essential. Post walk craic in Lynhams of Laragh, and many staying in the locality overnight for extended late night discussions on stuff and stuff. Enquiries to wicklore or Brenno via the messaging service.
And by the way, all welcome means all welcome - just be fit for a day in the hills!

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV 2 days 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...

Ben Dash: One of my earlier attempts
TommyV 2 days 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...

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...

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.

Devilsbit Mountain: Get a bit of the Devil in ya!

After a day of bagging some of the more unremarkable summits in North Tipperary, Devilsbit was a delight. There is designated parking at S06115 73178. Follow the waymarked path all the way to the ...

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...
