Slemish - Pimple of the North


Spot the pimple on the fair landscape of County Antrim.  This is Slemish - not really a mountain but a volcanic plug and one if the hikes I have been aiming to do around Northern Ireland.  So we set off on a fair day with great skies to enjoy the views.


Getting closer

More tomorrow, so please come back!

  11. Great walk and beautiful pictures. The nicest pimple I've ever seen. : )
    I've never been to Northern Ireland but I did walk the Ring of Kerry in Ireland a few years back with The Wayfarers. It was wonderful.

  28. Goodness calling it a "pimple" sounds funny but it sort of looks like one. Loved the kiddos starting the climb up. - Enjoyed reading about this place and seeing your photos of it.
