An important site during the last days of the Falklands Conflict, Sgt Ian McKay won a Victoria cross on this mount. Today it is a place of quiet reflection and memorial.

An interesting trip to retrace where our troops fought back in 1982. Very open and bleak landscape and would not have like to have been there during that time of the year.

For a taste of what Falklands battlegrounds were like, this is the place. You can easily retrace the steps of the British troops as they stormed the top... it's quite a hike so take your time and wear proper footware and a warm jacket (wind)....More
