"Camping besides Lough Dan" from mcrtchly Contract pics
Picture: Camping besides Lough Dan (Contract pics)

Wonderful Wicklow
The Wicklow Mountains are synonymous with bog (and often rain and wind). But not this weekend when the promise of glorious weather prompted us to try some wild camping. On a previous walk we had eyed up a small beach where the Inchavore River flows into Lough Dan and decided yesterday to camp out overnight there.
Finding somewhere safe to park overnight in the Wicklow Mountains is problematic but we summised that the end of the road near to the Scout centre by southern end of Lough Dan was probably one of the safest places. From here we retraced the road back around the end of Lough Dan and then along the Wicklow Way taking in Ballinafunshoge and Sleamaine on the way before turning SW along the laneway parallel to the Clogahoge River, crossing the river at the stepping stones before it meets Lough Dan. A short traverse along the shore and a crossing of the Inchavore River leads to the beach.
I've uploaded a short video of the walk and camp on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hJx_HVaqs8). However please note that there is no official wild camping in the Wicklows and if doing so then please be discreet and never leave any litter.
