In the meantime happy rambling

Our lastest walk on Saturday was a most enjoyable outing where 33 Ramblers were treated to a unique trip around the Orchards of Loughall. Starting  at Loughgall Country Park and following a path around the golf course.  We  passed an old lime kiln then made our way out of the park and up to a country Manor House which is now used as an Agricultural government building. Next we passed by some gardens containing colourful shrubs. We visited various apple orchards  including visiting a processing plant where Bramley apples are graded and packaged and sent off for making apple pies and for cider making. We then visited a final orchard where many took the opportunity to pick an apple or a few bag fulls in one person case. Once back at the Country Park we were treated to one of the  finest teas we have ever had. Tales of the day were discussed and we all agreed what an unique day out this had been. All photos on this page from this outing.

Our next  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

Next saturday ramble on Oct 4th is the first in our new schedule. When we plan to climb 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.
