Best
hbowman, just ask and I shall tell. Firstly I think there can be no “best” – there are so many and it all depends on what it is we each want. Best can be airiest or most panoramic or highest drop or most rugged, most gentle, most dramatic, etc. So if you want, speak to me through the mviews messaging service and I shall give my opinions which at the end of the day of course are only mine.
You could start perhaps with the following. Views: whole range from Loughshannagh/Carn area; Meelmore one direction back to high tops and the other to Doan and Carlingford; the Annalong Valley from the countour track on Cove (and this could also come under best walks); Pots of Pulrgarve on Commedagh down into Dundrum Bay; Annalong Buttress to Binnian-Beg run of tops; starters for 10. Walks: Just about everything except the Bloody Bridge Track; loop from Trassey to Meelmore, Mealbeg, Bearnagh and back is tough and rewarding; the Glen River anytime; avoid the Western Mournes except for ticking off; Chimney Rock and Rocky from Carricklittle over Annalong and Spences river – lonely but strangely rewarding; if you like lower woodland anything contouring on the coastal flanks of Blaeberry/Donard area. Only a few suggestions but hopefully you will give them a go.

The final summit of a day spent walking from Mamore Gap over Croaghcarragh and Urris Hills, back to the gap, then up to Mamore Hill and this peak. I had planned to continue to Raghtin More, but th...

Mamore Hill: Part Of A Brilliant Ridge Of Hills
Aidy 3 hours ago.
Tackled after walking Croaghcarragh and Urris Hills on the other side of Mamore Gap, and before continuing on as far as Crockmain, this was one the best days I've spent in the hills. Even a bit of...

Croaghcarragh: Seems Grander Than It Is
Aidy 3 hours ago.
Climbed on the way to the Urris HIlls from Mamore Gap, and like all the hills on both sides of the gap, I was captivated by the rugged terrain and the amazing views. All these hills have the feel ...

I've had the group of hills around here on my list for a while, as it looks spectacular from other mountains, or from nearby along the coast, and it doesn't disappoint when you actually get up the...

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy a day ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...

Tonelagee: The perfect beginner's mountain
Colin Murphy a day ago.
Besides crossing Glenmacnass River at the start and end, (which has seen many an unfortunate walker ascend in soggy boots) Tonelagee is a pleasant and relatively easy climb from the carpark near t...
