The Heath Trail

I revisited the National Trust's Divis and the Black Mountain this afternoon, a property situated in the Belfast Hills, County Antrim.

I spent almost 1¾ hours walking along the Heath Trail,  a distance of four miles.

The Heath Trail begins close to the Long Barn visitor centre.

This is a trail of heath and bog land, quite mucky in places, by way of a series of way markers along the route.

I spotted a murder (is this the right collective term?) of hooded crows en route; and a stonechat singing merrily at the top of a hawthorn tree.

Divis Lodge, with its temporary roof, awaits restoration.
