We climbed the Muckish in ok conditions. My youngest is 9 year's old and she was ok but only barely. I think any younger would struggle. We brought wet gear and needed it. You need boots and I'd recommend gaiters and walking sticks. Water and a picnic is good - you will need it but there aren't many places to... More

This is a tough climb especially after climbing the sides of Errigal. Brilliant views from the top. On a good day one can see forever. Again after a tough ascent there is a mighty descent from there into Falcarragh.

most visitors climb nearby mount errigal but this is a challenging climb with spectacular scenery on a fine day. Would be suitable for young teenagers but younger children than that would not be recommended. It can be quite breezy at the top so dress accordingly.

I climbed this mountain a year or two ago, via the quarry side. Tough climb, but wonderful views from the top! Would be very weather dependent. Assume it'd be very dangerous in misty weather!
