Our next walk is on Sunday 28th August to the Urris Hills in Donegal. Where we climb Raghtin Mor on this Grade B ramble


Our last walk on Saturday 20th August 16 ramblers set off on the Causeway Rambler from Carrick-a-rede to Dunseverick castle.
From here we started our walk which took us to Dunseverick harbour where we had our lunch.  We  continued on along the coastline passing through a sea arch before reaching Portbradden. Here  we climbed over some rocks unto White Park Bay. After walking the 2km of lovely sandy beach, we crossed another rocky patch unto the varied  track  which took us to Ballintoy Harbour.   While some ramblers enjoyed their ice cream others had a wander around the picturesque harbour before  making our way up the winding road and across the grassy track overlooking Sheep Island to Carrick-a-rede. Our cars were parked at Larrybane Quarry where part of The Game of Thrones was filmed.
The weather was ideal for this enjoyable walk with stunning views of Rathlin Island , Islay and the Mul
l of Kintyre.


Sunday 14th August saw a group of 26 ramblers complete a  nine mile walk near Creeslough Co Donegal. In dull conditions the walkers started at Kildarragh walking towards Lough Augher and onto the old derelict railway line that was once  the Lough Swilly train route from Derry to Burtonport. This path lead round to the lower slopes of Muckish Mountain. After lunch the ramblers climbed one of the slopes of Lower Crockatee giving everyone a superb viewpoint back to the coastal area of Falcarragh.  The walk then continued past another lake and back on to the railway line finishing at Muckish quarry. This was an enjoyable walk with great scenic views despite the midges deciding to join us for lunch.
