The Mourne Mountains Co Down.

Enjoyed exploring some of the lower peaks at the southern end of the Mournes Mountains yesterday. Started at Kilbroney Park near Rostrevor. The well developed trail serves as hiking and mountain biking facility. At the top of the trail we hiked on to open mountainside visiting Slieveban, Slievemeen and Slieve Martin. The highest point reached was 485m. The views across Carlingford Lough are stunning with Slieve Foy dominating the landscape the other side of the Lough. This part of the mournes are more gentle in gradient than the more northerly higher peaks. However it is still a rewarding day out. 

 Great views overlooking Carlingford Lough
