Against the Odds

After reading about it in the Ireland lonely planet walking guide ,did the second leg of the Antrim Hills way from the Larne- Ballymena road jump off point to Glenarm the day after the hurricane last October. I had done the Lagan towpath from Belfast to Lisburn the previous day before things stared to get out of hand in the evening with the trains not running , and just made the last bus back to Belfast at 4pm and then on to Larne before they shut everything down, by the skin of my teeth. Vicious night in Larne but it had calmed by the following morning so I got on the Ballymena bus. The driver wasn't sure where I needed to get off , luckily I correctly guessed it - a laybye on the left side of the road with a litter bin which I remember because a council guy came along in a van and emptied it. Cross the road , head back towards Larne and then at the sign for the Ulster way make your way through a very unpromising looking grassy track into the forest to emerge soon after on the open ground.
Had the whole length of the trek to myself maybe because of the hurricane hangover but only a bit of temporary mist encountered on Agnew Hill, just a few sporadic showers and the wind was fine. Some fine sunshine. Some of the waymarked posts on the first half of the walk had blown down but were still visible. One of the best walks in Ireland IMO. Started late at 11AM. This is the summit of Black hill coming up to 5PM looking southwest to Slemish about 10 miles away as the crow flies.
Still another hour and a bit to descend to the road and walk on to Glenarm. 13 miles according to LP guide though it felt like more. Linkback:
