Iceland:Winter Wonderland
Iceland:Winter Wonderland is probably Martin and Sharron's best outdoor adventure movie so far. The themes are peace, purity of form, and, well, perfection I suppose, because Iceland is portrayed in that way.
Let me quote Sharron:
"After little more than a day here, superlatives fail you as you bear witness to the utterly face-slapping scenery, the beauty of which can reduce you to tears. A vast volcanic laboratory of gushing geysers, grinding glaciers, magical mountains and wild waterfalls, you can't but sense your utter insignificance in the grander scheme of things set against such hyper-charged majesty. Just as one beer here is never enough, one trip is not enough either. Iceland is already calling us back..."
With superb composition, sharp editing and music that might have been written just for this movie, it speaks volumes.

The first flurry of snow here in Armagh. A biting wind. Antenna whiskers taste the chill air and the prospect of picture postcard winter days. In no time at all, the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue will...

Foardal: Beyond a shadow of a doubt

The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal,...

Summit Summary
Foardal: Simple approach from NW
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound.
