Our next ramble is on Saturday 6th September to one of the most distinctive of the Mourne Mountains , Slieve Bernagh , with it's granite tors on its summit at a height of 739m (2,400 ft). The walk is 6 miles taking approx 5 hours and is a challenging Grade B walk on rugged tracks and open mountain. A very enjoyable and scenic mountain walk with a few steep ascents and descents but able for most walkers with support on difficult points from colleague walkers.

Weather conditions on the day will be taken into consideration and may require some adjustment of the route. The walk will commence at the car park , Trassey Road , Bryansford on the right , (GR J 311314) just off the B180 Newcastle-Hilltown Road 2 miles before Bryansford.

Photos on this page are all from Rita's walk on Sunday up Croaghgorm in the Bluestacks , Co Donegal.

Our next Sunday ramble is to the mountains above Drumquin on Sunday September 14th. This a Grade B walk. Starting at Sloughan Glen Car park and taking in Bin and Bolaght Mountains.
