This weekend, Saturday, 23rd of June, we are travelling to Antrim and to the “Queen of the Glens”, Glenariff were our walk will begin. In total we will walk for around 4 hours, covering around 10 kms and climbing around 400 m. The first section will be the steepest, but that won’t matter as we will be taking in the spectacular views, along the Glenariff waterfalls . Once onto the open moorland on top Lurig Mountain, we should have panoramic views across the Glens and coast and if we are lucky with the weather, across to Scotland!
We are leaving Jonesborough by bus at 9 am, we are aiming to be walking shortly after 11.00 and back into Cushendall before 4 pm. A BBQ is organised for 5 pm, music is lined up in Mc Collum’s Pub between 6 and 7 pm and the bus will be leaving for home between 7.30/8 pm, we should be arriving back at “The Gap” around 10 pm. So another action packed, fun filled day, for only £30!!!
All walkers must have walking boots and a waterproof jacket, bring a packed lunch. Midges may be a problem so you might like to bring some midge spray along.
