"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
