INFO FOR NEW MEMBERS AT FOOT OF THIS PAGE


Our next ramble is a Grade C Walk - Newcastle to Murlough Bay in County Down on Saturday August 22nd. A-B walk along the coast and disused railway line.

Photos here from our latest walk which took place on the Antrim Plateau above the village of Carnlough. The group started off following the Largy Rd, then turning left onto the Gortnagary Road, walking steadly up the road for about a kilometer before taking a track which lead past a disused limesone quarry. Walking up a steep gradient unto the moorland the group reached the first of five loughs, Loughnatrosk beneath Big Trosk on the Garron Plateau. The ground was very wet and boggy underfoot. Following an old mountain track past the lough and over a ridge towards Loughfine.

Members had been walking for two hours and it was time for a lunch break. This was also an opportunity for a group photograph.

At this point the group followed part of the Ulsterway north past Denny'sLough over the blanket bog to Loughnabrick and Lough Fad. Lough Fad is stocked with trout and there is a hut used by the fishermen.  In bright sunshine and with Mount Slemish in view the group made there way along the track, descending down to the Waterfall Road. Stopping to vsit the spectacular Cranny Falls before continuing back to the car park at Carnlough.
