Since this is the first hill that I walk to the top point, it is quite hard and dangerous for me. I walked up with the red route (the steepest). That day it was raining, so rocks are quite slippery. However, when I reached the...More

It took me a good 90min to get to the top. Can be quite busy at times but not disturbing at all. The combination of blue bells and trees makes it look like a fairy tale land and the higher you get the more stunning...More

Beautiful tree lined roads to drive through. The rhododendrons were just magical in full bloom. Great for a hike. Well worth a visit for nature lovers.

Weather permitting this is a very enjoyable walk though a bit steep in parts it can be managed by some one of average fitness. Takes about 1:30 hours.

Simply beautiful. Take any number 1 bus and ask the welcoming bus driver to let you off at Belfast Castle. Flat shoes and layers are compulsory. Enjoy the amazing view - Belfast at night is awesome!
