Walking the hills, rivers and shores of Belfast

It’s surprising how often we don’t look at what’s on our doorstep. How often do we travel miles to find an ‘interesting’ walk, ignoring our local patch in some unspoken assumption that ‘distant fields are greener’? For Belfast any such assumption is clearly wrong.

Belfast is a city surrounded and defined by hills and water. From any vantage point in the city you will see one or the other and often both. In recent years, work by various public and voluntary bodies has given easy access to these wonderful assets. Access to quiet places where you can find leafy tranquillity by a bubbling stream a few yards from the stressed throngs: Access to high places where you can take in unrivalled stunning vistas of the city humming below: Access to lonely places where you can feel the solitude of the wide skies of an upland bog yet only be a couple of miles from the thronging City centre.

All this and more can be found inside, where Susan Clements takes you on 10 walks along the shore and rivers and into the hills surrounding Belfast. There are walks here to suit all tastes from short Sunday strolls to testing whole day hikes, each brought to you in an easy chatty style laced with nuggets of information about the history and legends of the places you are walking through as Susan guides you on your way. Enjoy your walk!
