It was wet and very blustery in the hills of Connemara today.

Heath Speedwell (Veronica officinalis) typically grows on acid grasslands and upland path margins.
With pale lilac flowers on 10cm spikes and small, oval, hairy toothed leaves, it flowers from May to August.

The juice was once thought to offer relief from earache.

I'm over in Scotland to run our BEN NEVIS weekend, and despite the unseasonal weather, the team are really looking forward to their climb of the Ben today.

The view down Loch Linne from our accommodation at 07.00 this morning looks broody, but we should get some sunshine and some views.

HOW HARD ARE OUR HIKES?
Our day hikes are graded easy, moderate, hard and strenuous.

EASY
Mainly on easily identifiable paths, with good underfoot conditions. Can include open countryside with some rough ground and easy ascents.
For example: East Brockagh and Glendalough day hike.
Time: 3 -5 hours Height gain: 200-400 metres Distance: 8km โ€“ 12km

MODERATE
Regular walkers who are used to rough paths and manage 12km (7ยฝ miles) with relative ease should find the moderate graded walks suitable. Can include more informal paths, rougher, boggy and more uneven terrain with the possibility of some moderately steep ground.
For example: Derrybawn and Spinc Loop.
Time: 5-6 hours Height gain: 400-600 metres Distance: 12 to 15km

HARD
Underfoot conditions can be rough and uneven with the possibility of some rocky sections and mountain terrain without clear paths. Suitable for regular hillwalkers with appropriate mountain footwear and clothing.
For example: Lugnaquilla, Carlingford mountain.
Time: 6-7 hours Height gain: 600-800 metres Distance: 15km to 18km

STRENUOUS
Walks that are suitable for regular hikers who are used to walking longer distances with a sustained climb of up to 1000m. Open moorland and mountain plateau, possibly rocky ground without clear paths. There may be some moderate exposure.
For example: Mweelrea, Carrauntoohil.
Time: 6-8 hours Height gain: 800-1000 metres Distance: 15km โ€“ 18k

OBLONG-LEAVED SUNDEW (Drosera intermedia) is less common in Ireland than the ubiquitous round-leaved sundew.

Found in boggy ground principally in the west of Ireland, this one was photographed the Poison Glen in Donegal.

02/06/2024

Spotted on Slieve Snaght (Donegal) this weekend.
The LEAST WILLOW (Salix herbea).

One of the smallest woody plants in the world and typically found in alpine and sub-alpine environments around the North Atlantic seaboard.

An unusual find here in Ireland but locally common on exposed mountainsides.

The Mountaintrails EXPLORERS are in Donegal for the Bank Holiday weekend, and today we headed for the Poison Glen and Slieve Snaght.

A boggy approach and descent with plenty of rocky granite ground on the mountain.

Superb day in great company.
Love it.
