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.
