On the back cover: 'Where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea.' They sweep down to the sea, they rise in huge heathery humps surrounded by farmlands divided into tiny, stone-walled fields. Explore the Mournes in the company of walking expert Paddy Dillon, taking in the rugged coast, high mountains and forest parks. The walks: the High and Low Mournes, as well as the Kingdom of Mourne; the Silent Valley circuit; the Mourne Coastal Path; the old smuggling route of the Brandy Pad; Warrenpoint and Rostrevor; the complete Mourne Wall circuit; the Mourne Trail section of the Ulster Way in four parts from Newry to Clough; Tollymore and Castlewellan Forest Parks; as well as lesser-known outlying trails such as the Castlewellan Loanans. Caters for casual strollers, family groups, ramblers and serious walkers.
