Geology of the Belfast Hills - Introduction.
This introductory geology course will take place over 5 consecutive weeks and will provide a comprehensive look at not only geology as a subject but also at the geology and landscapes of the area in and around the Belfast Hills.

The course will begin with the building blocks of planet Earth, including how the Earth formed, what itís made up of, geological time and the rock cycle. Subsequent evenings will look at the rocks, fossils and landscapes of the Belfast Hills, allowing you to discover how these were formed and exactly what they tell us about this areaís rich and diverse geological history. Ranging from searing hot deserts, to warm tropical seas, and from fiery volcanoes to icy wastelands, this course will not only introduce to you to one of the most fascinating of the natural sciences, but will allow you to discover some of the hidden secrets of the landscapes in and around Belfast. The course will be made up of four classroom based lectures and practical hands-on activities, as well as one field trip.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...

Camlough Mountain: Army Dreamers
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Peter Walker a week ago.
Relatively recent history has liberated Camlough Mountain from the bonds of the military: some metallic paraphernalia remains high on its slopes but if one puts that aside it's a cracking little e...

Although Carrigshouk is very close to a road it's quite a rough little walk, with deep heather, boulders, scrub and the remants of old tree planting. The worst of this can be avoided by parking ea...
