Those keen to take on a new mountain challenge can try the Celtic Six Peaks.

Featured in this month's Trail Magazine, it includes two of the National Three Peaks - Ben Nevis and Snowdon, but criss-crosses the Irish sea and English Channel to take in Ireland's Carrauntoohil, Snaefell on the Isle of Man, Cornwall's Brown Willy and Roc'h Trevezel in Brittany.

The last two peaks are small at 1,378 ft and 1,260 ft respectively, but Snaefell is over 2,000 ft and Carrauntoohil is higher than England's Scafell Pike at 3,414 ft.

Adventurers donning walking boots and carrying trekking poles may find it allows them to open up new walking horizons as well.

Carrauntoohil is one of four mountains over 3,000 ft in a range in County Kerry known as Macgillycuddy's Reeks.

The others are Cnoc na Peiste, Caher and Beenkeragh, while other 3,000-footers on the Emerald Isle include Brandon Mountain, Galtymore and Lugnaquilia.
