 The weekend to the Lake District in May 2015 has now been booked.  Unfortunately at this stage there is no more availability.  However a reserve list is being set up and if anyone wants to be on this contact Brian. 

We will be in contact shortly looking a few pounds!

In the meantime happy rambling


Our next ramble is a Grade C walk on Saturday 20th September. The walk starts at Loughgall Country Park and follows a path around the golf course. On the way we will pass an old lime kiln. We make our way out of the park and up to a country Manor House which is now used as a government building. Next we pass by some gardens containing colourful shrubs. We then have some road walking which leads us to apple orchards, passing beehives on the way. We visit a processing plant where Bramley apples are graded and packaged and sent off for making apple pies and for cider making. There will be an opportunity to take home some of the Bramleys.

Our next Sunday ramble is on Sunday 28th September to Benbradagh , the second most northerly summit in the Sperrins.  The walk is an easy B walk , however the terrain can be rough and boggy in places . Gaiters are required  .Last part on a disused roadway built for an American army base. About 7 miles long and approx 5 hours. Spectacular views of Donegal, Antrim and of course Co. Derry! Apres venue afterwards - McReynolds Dungiven.   For another description of the area please click here


On Sunday the 'Dirty Dozen' enjoyed our current great spell of weather with a very pleasant walk in the mountains above Drumquin. All photos on this page is from this walk.


Our new Autumn/Winter Schedule has now been published. Once again we have a wide and varied  schedule. Regular haunts such as the Sperrins , Darty , Bluestacks and Mournes where such a wide range of walks are possible are again included ; and we begin the programme in style with an ascent of Ulster's highest mountain...Slieve Donard. Many new or rarely frequent rambles are also on the schedule such as Slemish, Correl Glen , Buncrana , Branny , Pomeroy Forest and Crom Castle. The popular Killybegs ridge is back on the schedule and for our pre Christmas walk we have the Omagh Town circuit.
