Walks Programme

Meeting point

The meeting point for each walk is either the Bridge Street Car Park in Newry just outside the gates of the Buttercrane Shopping Centre (opposite side of the road to The Quays), the Square, Castlewellan at 9:45am or the starting point for each walk (listed in the programme table below) before 10:30am.

The walks below involve climbing mountains of 600 metres (2000 feet) or more in height.  A good level of fitness is required as none of our walks can be regarded as suitable for beginners to hill walking.  Please refer to our FAQs and our Fitness sections.

What to wear? It is important that you wear the appropriate gear. The Leader can refuse to allow you on the walk if you do not have the basics.
