Access Glenariff Mountain Antrim Hills
Glenariff Mountain rises impressively at the head of one side of the ice scoured Queen Of the Glens in the Antrim Hills. Not a recognized top here but it provides one of the most beautiful walks imaginable from Glenariff Forest Park - a walk i have done countless times until No trespassing signs appeared in recent years. The yearning to return got the better of me recently and although my route meant i did not encounter the signs i knew they were there and furtive glances betrayed my trespass.

When the farmers quad appeared in the distance i tried to disappear into the hillside and admired my ability to blend as it was lost from view. Shortly after it was coming right at me and I was nervously readying to produce my Mountaineering Ireland card and make it know that i have my own insurance for walking in the hills. He pulled up beside me and turned off the engine and we proceeded to chat for half an hour - mostly about Brexit, politics and the weather.

it was not lost that he mentioned walkers and the signs barring entry but they were sort of okay unless they had a dog with them - this is where the pain as a sheep farmer seemed to emanate. We left on good terms and I have some confidence that i can return to this special place that built my confidence in and love for hillwalking in the future.
