Welcome to Mid-Ulster Walking Club (Est.1989)

Affiliated to Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs.
Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed. The club has a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have included trips to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran.  In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. Mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, although no shorter, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape. Occasional trips abroad are organised independently from within the Club. We organise our own training sessions. 2018

The following was sent in by George... The ’A’ walk is ‘The Three Peaks Challenge’ taking in the summit tops of the three highest mountains in N.

We will then drop down into the valley at Blue Lough and trek up through the valley unto Brandy Pad, and ascend to the summit of Slieve Commadagh through The Castles.
