Heading for Scarr

Easter Monday proved the perfect Irish weather to head for the hills.

Destination Scarr in the Wicklow Hills, which stands at 641 metres. The route to the top began close to Lough Dan at Oldbridge and took the three of us over Kanturk (523 metres), which lies north west of Scarr. 

Fabulous views from the top of Scarr. Scarr is a stand-alone hill, which means you can see the terrain right across 360 degrees. Including in the vista was Kippure, Turlough Hill, Vartry Resservoir, Sugar Loaf, the Irish Sea and maybe even hints of Slieve Bloom.

That sort of a day.
