Project Mountain Goat - Reminder
Those of you who want to walk off the turkey well before the new year and watch history being made should make their way to Mullaghcarn in the Sperrins at 11.30 on December 27th to join in Simoburn's completion of the entire Vandeleur & Arderin lists in a year.

His progress has been reported before on these pages, but note that he has now completed 450 of the 454 hills - one quick outing to the Cahas will deal with three of the remainder, leaving Mullaghcarn for no. 454.

Mullaghcarn is an easy walk up a mast road; 7k return with an ascent of 300m. We will begin from the B48 at H494 830; December 27th, meeting at 11am and starting out at 11.30am. Anyone who has a couple of hours to spare is welcome!
