The Mourne and Cooley Mountains: A Walking Guide by Adrian Hendroff.

Description

The Mourne and Cooley Mountains are quite simply a hiker's paradise. These exhilarating walks will take you to the highest point in Northern Ireland, to scenic Slieve Foye and the ancient summit of Slieve Gullion.

On routes steeped in the legend of the Táin Bó Cúailgne, trek through picturesque woodlands. Discover the highest passage tomb in Ireland, use an old smugglers route and walk alongside tranquil reservoirs.

The more ambitious will relish the Mourne Wall and Mourne Seven Sevens challenges, and some summits include optional scrambles to the top of dramatic granite tors or rocky outcrops.

Each graded route is illustrated with photographs and specially drawn maps. Snippets on the rich flora, fauna, geology, history, heritage and folklore of each area are included throughout.

So, get your walking boots on and discover the impressive landscape that inspired C.S. Lewis magical world of Narnia and served as the backdrop for Game of Thrones.

Great book for any Mourne/Cooley walkers library

The 26 routes described - in good detail - provide a good set of routes for a wide range of walkers.
19 of the routes are in the Mournes and will be well known to regular walkers and the other 7 are in the less well known Cooleys and Gullion area.
Each route is graded from a 'dander' to 33km challenges and readers can match them to their level of fitness.
I believe that this is a useful addition to any local walkers library.

Great Investment

This book covers everything you need to know to make any trip to the Mournes a success. I found the route gradings particularly helpful. All these different routes are going to keep me busy, I can’t wait to buy more from this collection already!
