Mourne Mountains -County Down

In the Silent Valley, amidst the magnificent mountain scenery of the Mourne Mountains, lies a water reservoir that is of crucial importance for the water supply of County Down and the city of Belfast. Besides the reservoir and the surrounding park, the scenery of the barren mountains is particularly fascinating. Various hiking routes lead through the valley, also along and over the Mourne Wall, a 35 kilometres long traditional dry stone wall that runs through the Mourne Mountains.
