Not everyone is aware that the mountains are privately owned and actively farmed. Dogs are not permitted in the Reeks.
Please do not risk the goodwill shown by the landowners by ignoring the NO DOGS POLICY. The decision to ban dogs was not taken lightly by the forum. Dogs may be shot. Dog owners should be aware that sheep can suffer from stress which can be very harmful to them, even if the dog does not physically attack the sheep. This stress can result in spontaneous abortion/lambs being born dead and loss of body weight.
