The Mourne Mountains are a granite mountain range in County Down in the south-east of Northern Ireland. It includes the highest mountains in Northern Ireland and the province of Ulster. The highest of these is Slieve Donard at 850 metres (2,790 ft). The Mournes is an area of outstanding natural beauty and has been proposed as the first national park in Northern Ireland. The name Mourne (historically spelt Morne) is derived from the name of a Gaelic clann or sept called the Múghdhorna.The Mournes stand true to the words of songwriter Percy French as the place ‘where the mountains sweep down to the sea’. They are not only one of Northern Ireland’s most scenic areas and quite simply an adventurer’s paradise.
The Mourne Wall is among the more famous features in the Mournes. It is a 35km (22 mile) dry-stone wall that crosses fifteen summits, constructed to define the boundaries of the 36 square km (8,900 acres) area of land purchased by the Belfast Water Commissioners in the late 1800s. Construction of the Mourne Wall was started in 1904 and was completed in 1922.
This is the view of the sea as you start the ascent from Annalong wood. There's nothing particularly striking about this image other than I quite liked the colours and it's a reasonable close up of a portion of the famous Mourne wall.
