JAMES’ MUST-DO MOUN­TAINS

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - #walk1000miles Update -

CAR­RAUN­TOOHIL, COUNTY KERRY

Ire­land’s high­est moun­tain, set in the mid­dle of the glo­ri­ous MacGilly­Cuddy’s Reeks range. Not only for brag­ging rights, but be­cause the sur­round­ing ridges are a scram­bler’s par­adise. The ridge from The Big Gun to Knock­na­peasta is sim­ply stun­ning – highly rec­om­mended.

SLIEVEMORE, COUNTY MAYO

Ris­ing dra­mat­i­cally out of the sea, Slievemore (above) is a small (679m) but dra­matic and ex­cit­ing moun­tain on Achill Is­land. A fine moun­tain of­fer­ing su­perb views over the At­lantic – and with a few rocky steps to get your heart rac­ing.

CUILCAGH, COUNTY FER­MANAGH

With a fa­mous (and very long) board­walk known as the ‘Stair­way To Heaven’, Cuilcagh (be­low), has be­come a so­cial me­dia sen­sa­tion. It’s the per­fect place to grab some awe-in­spir­ing pho­tos; the board­walk means you aren’t plod­ding through swamps or nav­i­ga­tion­ally chal­lenged; and the views are great de­spite its small stature (665m).
