Have only climbed this mountain once but cannot wait to climb it again! Such amazing views the whole way up. Definitely wear suitable clothing and footwear as bog land needs to be crossed before climbing it

Best mountain I've climbed. It sounds strange but it's great fun. You have to wade through a bog at the start and that may deter many people but persevere and you'll not regret it. The Mrs. wore wellies but it wasn't long until she was...More

Amazing mountain to climb, views the whole way up. Beautiful views from very top of complete surrounding countryside, lakes, mountains, villages. Good hour to get to top, but well worth it.

Wear appropriate walking clothes and be prepared to be stunned. The clouds play hide and seek throughout the day. You feel as if you are in and out of a fairyland. Do not forget the shutterbug in any case:)

The beginning of the trail was bog, so sturdy, waterproof boots are needed. It's not a hard hike in good conditions, but alas, we did not have good conditions. We had rain and wind strong enough to knock me over. The latter part of the...More
