About this deal

Whether you’re sailing between the islands, or exploring the spectacular countryside, the OSNI Strangford Lough Activity map is a guide to the area. Along less accessible stretches (such as the headlands, terraces and eroding cliffs extending south from Newcastle) unimproved pastures, scrub and colourful communities for maritime plants fringe the shore, which in places also displays many features of geological interest. Visibility could be significantly less than 50 metres in all directions with few or no visual references, especially on featureless moors or plateaux. Great view of Ben From reservoir from elevated platform about 250m prior to col with Slieve Lamagan. The Mourne Wall, now a famous landmark running through the Mournes, was originally built in an effort to keep cattle and sheep out of the water catchment area of the Silent Valley reservoir.

All tours range in level and duration to suit a mix of age and ability and are fully staffed by local and passionate Guides, supported by our range of equipment, shuttles etc.Grab a seat at the Giant’s Table or sneak into the Ladybird House to get a picture of the local witch. In a survey of leisure visitors, 79% were found to come from Northern Ireland, 15% from elsewhere in the British Isles or Republic of Ireland, and 5–6% were international visitors. Turn left at the next junction and skirt along the stone wall that marks Tollymore’s southern boundary. Our varied landscapes and committed conservationists help to ensure that our natural environment is protected for generations to come. A strenuous walk this route takes in the peaks of Slieve Bearnagh (one of the most distinctive mountains in the Mournes, renowned for the granite tors on its summit (739m)) and Slieve Meelmore (704m), finishing by walking down Happy Valley and along a section of the Ulster Way.

For those who enjoy a challenge, the Seven Sevens is an 18 mile, 2,470 metre climb of all seven peaks over 700m above sea level (Meelmore is an “honorary” member, checking in at 687m). The western Mournes are much quieter than their eastern counterparts and walkers who prefer a quieter, more reflective hike will be at home here. The Cnocnafeola Centre/ Mourne Hostel based off the route in Attical also offers prearranged transfers to and from Ott Car Park. Binnian is not merely a rough hewn rock to view in its own right, it is first and foremost the perch from which to observe everything else worth seeing from 750 metres across a radius of thirty miles.Binnion with the weight was tough and as others have said, slieve muck is the big challenge of the day. Make sure to wear sturdy walking boots and don’t forget to bring snacks, water and a fully charged phone on this long walk. The Mournes is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been proposed as the first national park in Northern Ireland.
