We climbed Carnavaddy and Clermont Carn on an October Sunday outing that combined 3 methods of transport: train, bike and shank's pony. Taking advantage of the Sunday tracker ticket which allows you to travel anywhere on NI Railways for a fiver, we got the 12 o'clock train from Belfast to Newry. Then a 15km cycle ride along Carlingford Lough to a point just opposite Narrow Water Castle and up the hill to Bavan. Here we hid our bikes and locked them and set off on foot, attacking Carnavaddy from the north. Clear views of the Mournes, Carlingford Lough and Dundalk bay were magnificent. The tranquillity of the scene was momentarily disturbed by some morons on quad bikes, who came in our directions especially to annoy us, but fortunately they hadn't enough fuel for more than one pass before being forced to descend the mountain. From here we headed NW to Clermont Carn, before descending the road back to Bavan, cutting off the big loop. We then pedalled back to Newry in time for the 18.10 train. If you get the 10 o'clock train from Belfast, you can fit even more into your walk! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/531/comment/3451/
