This is a view of Arderin from the Glendine Gap. The Glendine Gap road is a truly spectacular drive but I feel it has diluted the wilderness aspect of the area somewhat. Arderin itself is now too easy to attain from the roadside and were the road not here, the Glendine Gap area would be very remote, a gem worth hiking all the way to. As it is the Laois-Offaly border is marked on this lonely road with all the paraphernalia one would expect to find on the North Korea/South Korea border! Its here you park for the summit walk.
