There s no better way to discover the diversity of a region than on foot. Treks to far-flung regions of the world have become a thing of nothing for people today but how many have spent time discovering the natural treasures of their own country? Helen Fairbairn has personally walked the best routes within Northern Ireland and her selection of walks from rugged mountain peaks to spectacular coastal scenery, from challenging hill walks to shorter woodland and waterside excursions has something for everyone. Every part of Northern Ireland is covered, from the mountains of Mourne to the Giant s Causeway, from Fermanagh s lake district to the rolling Sperrins. Each route is illustrated with a clear sketch map and descriptions include detailed access information; the distance, time, ascent of walk, map reference and start and finish locations are also outlined. Factual and historical points of interest are interspersed with route details giving the reader a more informative overview of an area (Kebble Nature Reserve has the largest seabird colony in Ireland).
