Carrigvore - The Big Rock

Carrigvore, Wicklow Mountains at Dawn

Date First Walked: October 1st 2009
Range: Wicklow Mountains
Mapsheet: 56
Distance: Circa 3km
Classification: Dillon, Hewitt
Height: 682 metres
County: Wicklow

My Dillon Count: 9

With a new pair of boots to break in and an hour to spare in Wicklow, I decided to take a quick walk up to the summit of Carrigvore from Sally Gap. Lacking any great interest in its own right, the mountain is normally walked as part of a longer circuit.

Start the walk up Carrigvore from Sally gap. You are helped by the fact that you are already at over 500 metres so it’s only another 180 metres to the top of the mountain. After a short initial walk through heather, a track is quickly picked up which leads to a widening ditch nearer to the top which can be made in 20 minutes. The summit of the mountain is adorned by a large rock formation which gives Carrigvore its name. A number of deer grazing on the summit moved off on my arrival.

The walk back down gives time to take in the views of the desolate area around Sally Gap and along the winding military road.
