Walking in the Mourne Mountains : 30 routes in Northern Ireland's finest mountains
Part of the Walking Northern Ireland series
30 epic walks in Northern Ireland's highest mountains which sweep majestically down to the Irish Sea at the pretty seaside town of Newcastle.
This proximity to the sea is a characteristic of the Mournes, often creating a mysterious atmosphere, as frequently the high peaks can be seen rising dramatically out of a blanket of sea mist.
The Mourne range is a stunning wilderness which is popular with local walkers but is relatively unknown to those outside of Ireland.
The wild mountain terrain includes beautifully long ridges, magnificent summits and vibrant heather and gorse covered slopes. The highest peaks are completely encircled by the famous 22 miles long Mourne Wall. The 30 routes have been handpicked and clearly written by a local walker with decades of experience.
