Enjoy the View

 Northern Irish beauty as seen from Kilbroney Forest Park, Rostrevor.  Well worth the climb to enjoy the view over Carlingford Lough.


Overlooking Rostrevor
 Below is the Cloughmore Stone. Legend has it that this huge granite boulder was tossed from the other side of Carlingford Lough by the mythical Irish giant Finn MacCool at his enemy Ruscaire.


Below looking towards the port of Warrenpoint.

 Many have carved their names into the stone


Hope you enjoyed the view! I just saved you the climb!

    1. Hello! thanks for your comment! I didn't carve my name as I forgot my penknife!
      We have lots of fir trees, it seems they fare better on the rocky slopes.
