The Top 100...
...I really like this feature, though to my shame I haven't contributed half enough.

I like the arbitrariness of it all. I mean, an issue like height is cold objective fact, but the fun debate is surely in the subjective, the "what is your favourite....".

And the list throws up some real quirks. Cruach Mhór at a whopping 4th yet the jewel that it looks across at and is dominated by, the Big Gun itself, trailing in 16th. And splitting them for some unfathomable reason. Knocknagree in the top 10. Knocknagree! It's not even surely in anyone's "top 10 at the western end of the Cahas"? And speaking of the Cahas, Hungry Hill only just makes the top 100, at 90th, yet Knockeirky (which is pretty much just a bit of raised bog from its southern aspect) is 14 places better off. Knockeirky would make my "least impressive 5" ranking, marginally higher than the one with the graveyard for JCBs just below the summit. And not a peep from any of the Mangertons, even the highly accessible and attractive Peakeen. Boughil, which can look pretty dramatic, fails to chart. And speaking of dramatic, I cannot believe that Mullaghanattin only comes in 41st. It's Mullaghanattin, it's the most attractive mountain in the country...that's not me confusing the objective with the subjective, that's gotta be official!

Slieve Foye: Not bad.
shanks 4 hours ago.
Excellent if introduceing new walkers reasonably well signed but was a little overgrown in spots and path really close to wire fencing at others. Apart from that ☺

Maybe the height gain above is correct. Maybe it just felt like one of the hardest things you?ve done. Maybe the cumul walk, Len: 56.3km, Climb: 3018m, Area: Spain, Canary Islands ()

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV 3 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...

Clifden Hill: Didn't bag it

I drove as far as the point mentioned by Jamessheerin. Nice views over Lough Inchiquin, the drive trhough the trees only add about ten mentres of elevation and lots of briars so I got back in my c...

Cloontohil: My nearest MV hill
TommyV 3 days ago.
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...

Ben Dash: One of my earlier attempts
TommyV 3 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...

More of a drive than a hike. Well worth it for the views.

Devilsbit Mountain: Get a bit of the Devil in ya!
TommyV 3 weeks ago.
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 ...

Cooneen Hill: Very average
TommyV 3 weeks ago.
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...
