Login error.
Context of comment:Please note that today, 2 July 2019 for some hours there has been a login problem. Essentially this has meant that you may find that when you return to the system prompts you as if you were a guestuser even though you have previously logged in on the device you are using.
Message:If this happens to you, then enter your correct credentials and the system should work.
The underlying has been fixed as far as we are aware.
Additional points:However as with all bugfixes there may be other issues. Don't hesitate to let us know.

Track # 2900
Context of comment:This track is corrupted. It appears to be two separate tracks that are joined. Saggart Hill and Cupidstown Hill are one track; Lugnagun is another track that is a significant distance away. The track summary shows length of 10.1 km, which I believe is the correct distance for the first track above. However, the time of 7h55m probably reflects the distance of doing both hikes, including the distance in between. Also, when the GPX file is downloaded, it shows a distance of 66.4 km, with Blessington Lake being a skipped portion of the hike.

"don't know" option for view rating?
Context of comment:View ratings
Message:How about adding a "don't know/didn't see it" option for the "view" question when rating hills? Currently if you climb a hill to be greeted by a summit view of 30 feet of mist then you either can't rate it or have to guess what the view might be like on a better day. All the other qualities aren't weather dependent so "view" is the odd one out (tongue not entirely in my cheek).

Lyons Hill 197m North Kildare
Context of comment:Visited Lyons Hill on New Years Day, was wondering if this Hill could be included in Binnions list or local and historical
liist. A lot of History to this Hill
Message:According to North Kildare tourist information, 7 Counties can be seen from Summit. It also served as as a spiritual home and coronation site of ten Kings of Leinster from 760-1003. Lyons was one of 300 locations featured in Dinnshencash Eirenn and was designated as one the "assemblies and noted places" of Ireland ranked with Tara, Eamhain Mhaca, Knockaulin Cruachan with a 28- verse foundation myth, the Toraiocht of Liaumin> and there is much more.

New mapping layer added.
Context of comment:For some time we have had difficulties with licensing on map layers with a warning about API licensing appearing in one case.
Message:We have introduced a new mapping layer "OpenTopoMap" for use on maps on the website as a trial.

This is a layer that appears for the entire world which has contours and hill-shading built in (though not layer tinting).

This layer should be particularly useful in Northern Ireland where the OSI mapping we also have is not detailed.
Additional points:As usual we are looking for bug reports and also any comments about the new layer.
As previously, we offer a number of layers and if one doesn't work on a given occasion, another probably will.
These are accessed by clicking on the layer symbol on the map at its top right corner.

"A new Arderin Beg ?" from David-Guenot Contract pics
Picture: A new Arderin Beg ? (Contract pics)

Possible Arderin Beg in the Derryveaghs
Context of comment:On the way down Drumnalifferny and its NE Top on 25. November I started my descent towards the E down to Lough Maumbeg (Loch an Mhama Beag). There is a minor top just E of it (approx. grid ref. B 93955 16182) which could possibly have the prominence to be an Arderin Beg, although this did not sound obvious from below. I stopped for a few minutes by the lough and then for another few minutes at the top for the GPS to settle and the height difference suggested was 16-18m.
Message:Maybe it could be worth measuring with proper instruments one of these days ? Note that the col with Drumnalifferny NE Top where I stood to make an estimation of the prominence is actually on the N side of the lough (not visible on the pic).

Lighthouses book, reviewer wanted.
Context of comment:Collins Press describes one of their recent books as follows: "Lighthouses of Ireland – An Illustrated Guide to the Sentinels that Guard our Coastline by Roger O’Reilly is a spectacularly illustrated celebration of these architectural gems that offer comfort, intrigue or excitement in equal measure. "

MountainViews now takes an interest in the coast. If you would like to review the book contact us at admin@mountainviews.ie
