Black Mountain View

I live at the bottom of Black Mountain but worth venturing to the top for the view. It is very windy up there so take suitable clothing.

The high end of the platue mesmerizes the visitors with the colours in the sky. The cool ambience and natures art work all infront of eyes makes one feel romantic.

Divis & Black Mountain. I had never been though I had heard good reports about it. Visited it on a Saturday and it was very busy with people. Parts of it were still covered in snow, which was lovely. Brilliant views over Belfast - great day out, and to finish it off. A wee trip to the cafe was just... More

As soon as I stepped foot off the bus I could see the mountains in the background, and I thought I'm climbing that. A few days later I forgot and after strolling round Belfast I found myself closer to the black mountain than I had been so far soooo I proceeded to find my way through the residential/ industrial estates...

This is an easy walk from the car park on the Springfield road, and it shows the city off in all it's splendour. If you are feeling more energetic you can detour and climb Divis. Bring a picnic on a good day and enjoy.

Black Mountain was closed to walkers during The Troubles when the British Army was stationed on the mountain. It opened again to walkers in 2005. The army's presence had one good side effect - the preservation of rare orchids and other wildflowers. From the top, you can see west to Lough Neagh, south to the Mourne Mountains and east to...
