I bought this in anticipation of a trip to Northern Ireland. We had hoped to do several walks in The Mournes but the first one was such a disaster we abandoned our plan. It may be the other walks in this book are accessible but this one resulted in minor injuries to myself and my husband as well as ruining a new rucksack. We are both experienced hikers and fortunately we had a detailed ordnance survey map (1:25000) with us as otherwise we would have been completely lost.
The first part of Walk 4 was fine but once we started ascending we found absolutely no sign of the "Scholar's pad". We managed to pick up the route further on but many of the gates were wired or tied shut. Several parts of the path were completely overgrown or obstructed by barbed wire fences. With no alternative, other than to retrace our steps for several miles and re-confront a herd of angry cows, we had to make the best of it.
I can only assume the author has not attempted this route for a very long time.

with some interesting facts about the history of the mournes. I would recommend pairing this with an OS map of the mountains and using the routes as a suggestion. We quite often go 'off piste', using the suggested walk as a template for a longer walk.

A lot of details on the walk itself, no pictures, makes it a little "unfriendly" to read! Haven't tried the walks yet!! was looking for family walks but most are moderate/difficult so may be will use the book in few years time when kids are older!

This is very useful. Good selection of walks, takes in all the High and Low Mournes. Each walk has its own good, simple map (no annoying doubling or trebling up) and is clearly described and helpfully annotated with bits of local and/or particular interest - you can't go wrong for the most part. At various high points along the way you are invited to take in a panoramic view and the author excels at elucidating the big picture. Also, the walks are individually graded (quite accurately, in my opinion), so you know exactly what you are taking on. And you won't always be hugging the Mourne Wall: one of the best things about the book is that the author chooses his routes carefully, on many occasions taking you away from the wall, varying the terrain within walks too, to keep you alert.

The High Mournes get most attention from walkers, but thanks to this book you can discover wonderful walks in the lesser mountains, too. My favourite is the one beginning at Leitrim Lodge picnic area and taking in Tievedockaragh, Pierce's Castle and Rocky Mountain (walk 5); this includes forest track, high slope and summit paths, old bog roads and a couple of interesting rocky tors to grapple with. It exemplifies the care and attention that Mr Dillon employs; end result for us is a superb collection.

Informative and accessible introduction gives short sections on the area's geology, history, water catchment (one reason for the famous Mourne Wall), the Wall itself, flora and fauna, access and walking opportunities, the Mourne Heritage Trust and safety for walkers. There is tourist information, too, although you should note that the telephone numbers given all have the dialling code used from the Republic of Ireland - so if you are ringing from the UK prefix 028 instead of the 048 listed.

I liked this book as I have recently started walking the Mournes and it offers lots of (32) different walks with a guide to each, sketches and difficulty ratings. Must have for the beginner!!!
