Mourne and Cooley Mountains - A Walking Guidebook

Mourne and Cooley Mountains - A Walking Guidebook

by: Adrian Hendroff
The Mourne and Cooley Mountains are quite simply a hiker's paradise. These exhilarating walks will take you to the highest point in Northern Ireland, to scenic Slieve Foye and the ancient summit of Slieve Gullion.

On routes steeped in the legend of the Tain Bo Cuailgne, trek through picturesque woodlands. Discover the highest passage tomb in Ireland, use an old smuggler's route and walk alongside tranquil reservoirs. The more ambitious will relish the Mourne Wall and Mourne Seven Sevens challenges, and some summits include optional scrambles to the top of dramatic granite tors or rocky outcrops.

Each graded walk is illustrated with splendid colour photographs and specially drawn maps. Grade, distance, total ascent, estimated time and OSNI map sheet references are given for each walk together with instructions on getting to the start. After introductory notes on the walk features the route navigation instructions are detailed and include grid references for every paragraph of the text. Snippets on the rich flora, fauna, geology, history, heritage and folklore of each area are included throughout. Discover this impressive landscape that inspired C.S. Lewis' magical world of Narnia and served as the backdrop for 'Game of Thrones'.
