The Mourne Mountains: The 30 best hikes, handpicked by a County Down local

Available

Description

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.

This is the only guidebook for the Mourne Mountains with Real OSNI 1:25,000 Maps and includes:

- Numbered waypoints linking the Real Maps to descriptions - Game of Thrones film locations - Graded routes to suit all abilities - Everything the hiker needs to know to plan routes: route descriptions, difficulty, weather, how to get there, and more - Section on accommodation - Information on wildlife, plants & geology - The 21-mile Mourne Wall challenge walk - List of Irish place names - Full colour throughout
