CaptainVertigo: Track 2883 in area near Knocklayd, Antrim Hills (Ireland)
Knocklayd AA1
Length: 4.4km, Creator time taken: 1h14m, Ascent: 369m,
Descent: 388m

Places: Start at D13035 37700, Knocklayd, end at Start

There are four Arderins in County Antrim. I imagine that most southerners will start with Knocklayd being the furthest away, and work back. Knocklayd will inevitably be climbed on its own: there is no natural link to the other AAs, but one might, as a special act of penance, formulate a single ramble linking them all. It would be a challenge!
There is ample parking at the Start mentioned above, at the forest entrance. The walk is divided into two legs, the first part comprising steep forest paths, the second on the open mountain. Don't run up too quickly if you intend to have fuel in your tank for the other three AAs. I admit that, as the mountain was shrouded in cloud, I put the much praised views out of my mind and forced myself to get up and down promptly, to make things more interesting for myself. Had the weather been different I would have no doubt lingered on the summit to take in Rathlin, Scotland and Antrim itself.

Here are the AA stats:
