We visited as part of a one day battlefield tour. Excellent day out. Superb views from the top and lots of interesting 1982 stories to hear about. An excellent tour.

Falklanders take con5inued pride over Mount Longdon. Our driver on our return from Volunteer Point, took the time to explain the battle at Mount Longdon. A helicopter is burnt and rusting along the highway as a relic of the battle. Fascinating history that the Falklanders readily share with visitors.

Its history is riveting, the battle fought there intense and tragic. The relics of war still remain. We found the climb even to the lower reaches very moving. What a desolate, sad place, yet the scene of such courage ...

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). Lots of rocks and ravines. Very wild terrain and great views of surrounding mt tops where other battles were fought.
You'll be thirsty and hungry to take something along for nourishment. And of course dont leave anything behind. No graves here, but lots of battle leftovers ... Argentine gun emplacements, radio gear, boots, ration tins. There doesnt seem to be any formal rule about taking souvenirs that you find, but it somehow does seem to be improper to do so. People died here.
Dont hike Mt Logan alone ... if you had a fall or twisted ankle it would be a big deal and youd probably be on your own. And dont do the walk after dark or in bad weather.

Plan at least half a day. Very moving. And very quiet, except for the sound of wind.

This is a good couple of hours walk from Moody Brook, where your vehicle can be left. It's reasonably easy to reach, however, it can be boggy when wet. Be careful, because it's highly unlikely that you will see anyone else on your walk.
There are numerous abandoned armaments you can see en route.
Make sure you keep going until you reach the very end of the ridge, which is where you will find the cross, along with the official and family memorials to the fallen. A very humbling and atmospheric place to visit, and well worth the effort.
