Silent Valley Horseshoe
« on: 20:13:11, 16/03/16 »
The most memorable walk I've ever done in the Mournes was a 10-hour high-level circuit of the Silent Valley reservoir. I've done the walk twice. The mountains climbed were Slievenaglogh, Slieve Binnian, wee Binnian and Moolieve.

Wonderful photos Henry  O0

We must save our pennies and go to Ireland to do some of these mountains  :)

Thanks April; the back castles of Binnian is my favourite walk in the Mournes and Slievenaglogh is one of only 4 mountains in the range which boasts a double lake panorama :)

Thanks Rhino, I remember walking into O'Shea's bar in Donard park one day and when the bar man said I looked like a thirsty man, I replied 'I've just climbed 7 peaks in 5 hours'; he replied ' you certainly look like it.' ;D ;D

How wonderful!  We've been over to N Ireland once, and even started up one of the hills with some friends.  Unfortunately we didn't really get the chance to do a proper walk.  Looking at your pictures, I wish we had now.   I never knew how lovely it all is.  Thank you for posting.  :) O0 O0
