“Great walk with fab views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Not too hard a walk as perfect paths all the way to both peaks, ie Black Mountain and Divis. Not too long, plenty of fresh air, nice bit of exercise, and rewarded with fabulous views of the city and coastline.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Changes colour every day. Just beautiful. Great walks. You can cheat and drive around the back to walk on to the mountain. Definitely worth it for the views over Belfast

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Park up near Belfast Castle and walk up to the top. Great view of Belfast. On the way down call into Belfast Castle for lunch or a coffee.

“not the best view of Belfast, but not by much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you want the best view of Belfast city and the whole way to the Mournes (on a good day) try Napoleon's Nose or McArt's Fort if you prefer... there is no comparison!

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Visited during a Black Cab Tour.
An excellent insight into recent history conducted by an excellent guide , should be followed by a visit to the Falls for a balanced view
