Book Description

31 May 2012 Walking Guide
This guide presents top-class walking routes in Northern Ireland. From rugged mountain peaks to spectacular coastal scenery, from challenging hill walks to shorter woodland and waterside excursions, there is something for everyone. Every part of the region is covered, from the mountains of Mourne to the Giant's Causeway, from Fermanagh's 'lake district' to the rolling Sperrins. Routes vary from two-hour strolls to eight-hour upland challenges. Much thought has gone into making this guide easy to use: each route, prefaced with a quick-reference summary, is illustrated with a clear sketch map; descriptions include detailed access information while points of interest are highlighted flora and fauna, history, archaeology and folklore. A compact region with huge scenic variety, Northern Ireland is ideal for walking yet is often overlooked. This authoritative guide is changing that, using the author's enthusiasm and knowledge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok I suppose 17 May 2008
This book only gets three stars for highlighting Northern Ireland as a great place to walk - which it is. However, the synopsis talks about the authors enthusiasm which, for the life of me, I couldn't see in fact the book came across quite dry. A typical walking book that seems to be published these days - turn this way, turn that...

No mention of the history of a place or indeed of any points of interest. Some of the walks the author mentions I have personally walked and she seems to have cut some of them short for example, she refers to the North Down Coastal Path as 12.5 miles - it's actually some 16 miles long and runs from Portavoe to Holywood and not Groomsport to Holywood as she suggests - the walk between Portavoe and Groomsport is actually one of the highlights of the entire stretch. She also starts the Lagan Towpath at Stranmillis when in fact it starts at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast City Centre a few miles back.

All in all good to see a book written on walking in Northern Ireland but could have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide 19 April 2009
This guide is helpful when exploring Northern Ireland on foot. We tried 5 of the walks, and some were confusing at times. The guide is rather old fashioned by current standards, but we couldn't find much else on sale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good walking guide 19 Mar 2010
The book covers a range of walks in different areas of Northern Ireland, from easy to difficult walks. It includes a few in the Mournes but it's nice to include mountains, parks and coastal areas in other parts of the country too. These include the Sperrins, Antrim hills, Lecale way etc. Easy to follow so I'd highly recommend it.
