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.
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.Read more ›

As the Mournes are near me (4 miles) I love this little bookPublished 8 months ago by Wilfred Swain
Nice little book, fits easily into a back pack (it's about the size of a paperback novel) with interesting walks. Being a local Mourne person it appeals to me.Published 18 months ago by M. Christie
