How to spot a Scavvy 5 walker
While some of us have met previously, there will be many people along for the Scavvy 5 walk on Saturday for the first time, such as MV members Derry259, Geo, Captain Vertigo, Muckyboots etc. So there will be a bunch of people standing uncertainly around the small carpark at Glenmalure Lodge at 9:30am on Saturday. Those of you coming along but unsure how to recognize the MountainViews group will know us as we will look a little bit odd. Actually myself and Brenno will make a point of asking anyone who appears if they are here for the MountainViews walk. We are then heading into Glenmalure to leave some cars at the zig zags and we will all continue by car to the start point a few kilometres on.

There is no mobile phone coverage in Glenmalure valley, or even in the last few kilometres leading down to the Glenmalure Lodge from Laragh. Strangely enough there IS some intermittent coverage outside the Glenmalure Lodge itself. So if you are running inexcusably late, try and inform us on 087 794 5773 so we can decide whether to wait for you! Chances are we will leave Glenmalure Lodge as soon as we can to make the most of the time.

I am also happy to meet people outside Lynhams of Laragh at 9am if people want to be guided the 10kms to the meeting point. Contact me via the messaging service or on 087 794 5773. Looking forward to meeting you all then! (And Captain – we will have magic weather!)

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...
