Pitch Perfect
New places to camp in the Mournes. What floats your boat or what crag’s your bag? If it means a wash, a bit of craic, soup served by a scrubbed-face country wench and the town 5 mins away, you could do worse than pitch at Meelmore Lodge campsite. An anathema to the writer, who’d rather hang like a bat in a crag off Commedagh. Loughshannagh as intimated, does well although you may be kept awake by pubescent revellers en route from some outdoors’ award to another - perhaps the Guinness Book of Records longest continuous speaking one - and there are other faves, like half way up the Trassey Track - dominant characteristic, water: mainly in your tent; or beside the Glen River at the tree line; or the Northern face of the Annalong Wood - dominant characteristics, Buckie bottles. Why not try a bit more adventurous - halfway up Chimney Rock from Bloody Bridge - heartbreaking views to the sea, the South, the Isle of Man and the gorgeous Chimney Rock at your elbow. Or up above the Silent Valley Road between Pigeon Rock’s buttresses - follow the track up to a spot with dramatic views of craggy Mourne and Binnian summit - odd light and bit dramatic. Or at the Newcastle foot of Commedagh - from the Glen River at the tree line, hang a right on a tarred road to an old fire chute (the fairies may live here - you’ll see), follow it up and a steep pull over rough ground to discover nature has laid a lawn with boggling view down to Newcastle, Dundrum Bay and on a good day very nearly all of counties Down and Antrim. Look closely at pic - another new place to camp.
