A Wee Dander on Donard Guided Challenge

Join us on a guided challenge to ascend the two highest peaks of the Mournes - Slieve Donard (853m) and Slieve Comedagh (765m).

A challenging walk this is certainly not one for the faint hearted but will reward you with wonderful views and an awesome sense of achievement.

As you discover the Ice House, stone pitching and once eagle lairs as you follow part of the famous Mourne Wall along the way it won't take long to realise why this is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Whether you are a keen walker looking to go out with other like minded people or someone who enjoys walking and wants to push themselves that little bit further you are very welcome to come along on Saturday 21st September!
