I had never heard of Mountsandel. It's a beautiful woodland walk right on the banks of the Bann and tucked away within it is a Mesolithic fort - the earliest known site of human activity in Ireland. Interpretive boards are dotted along the way to tell you what you're seeing. Seems to be entirely dog-friendly. Quite steep in a couple... More

When the weather is good Coleraine has so much to offer in the way of walks. There is Mountsandal Fort which is a lovely walk through a forested area. Not a long walk but can be hilly for people with disability. Along the riverside over at the Strand Road there is a lovely walk by the Bann which is flat... More
