Knocknagun - Prince William's Seat - Ravens Rock - All you can eat Peat

A nice trek along the Dublin-Wicklow border. Knocknagun (gaelic: Cloch na gCon meaning 'the Rock of the Hounds'), a rocky outcrop (tor); height 555m. And Prince William's Seat (555m).  Our ascent will take us past the Castle Toole Mass Rock. We will descend via a section of the Wicklow Way.

Great views en route of Glendoo, Tibradden, Fairy Castle, Knockree Hill, Maulin, Tonduffs, Kippure, the Lough Brays, and 'the Big Smoke' (i.e. Dublin). 

Expect a bit of squidge (muck) on this one. Bring gaiters if you've got them.
