Ascent Trip Report

A late lunch of home-made scones in the Courtyard cafe, then along the Forest Drive and a walk over the two two tops of Slieve Gullion. Views as far as the Wicklow and Donegal mountains, and an enchantingly tranquil Witches Pool. Finished off at a run over slopes of grass and heather out of sheer exhilaration at the loveliness of the surroundings.
