"8 Scavvies and Liza Minnelli at the last Mournes Scavenger Walk" from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: 8 Scavvies and Liza Minnelli at the last Mournes Scavenger Walk (Contract pics)

SCAVENGERSHEAVEN
Scavenger Walk 7, Mourne Mountains, Co Down – looks like Saturday August 27th.
For all hardened Scavvies, we know the format: Walk, eat, drink, revel – and hate going home.
For would-be Scavvies of whom we hope there are many, a brief brief:
Scavenger Walks – nothing to do with picking up rubbish or eating dead hillwalkers – simply named after founders, mountainviewers the charming Jackill and less charming Bleck Cra. Jackal/Crow – geddit?
These walks rotate (sort of) South, North and in-between and comprise 2 to 3 of them a year.
The idea is to enjoy some of the best walks and mountain scenery in Ireland at reasonably accessible levels – and sometimes also the worst howling rain – to mountainviewers and their friends. It is very informal – in fact we are against any formality and there is no charge.
Whether the walk is a day’s drive away or on your doorstep, the idea is to book yourself/s into a local B&B, for there will be eating in a good but inexpensive eating house and reparing thereafter to pubs, music and endless squiffy blah about mountains.
Scavenger Walks are not mountainviews events and in fact derive from nothing of the mountainviews site but are planned, run and populated in the main by walkers who happen to be mountainviews members.
Full details will follow but it is good to get your name down for it soon, to get the info and dub yourself a Scavvy – a very high ranking thing indeed.
You need to be walking at least at mid/fast Grade B and used to 5 to 6 hours on the hill once a fortnight or more. Or thereabouts.
For this particular Scavenger Walk, speak/ask at douglasreid@utvinternet.com

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...
