Join the Glasgow Countryside Club on another romp, this time through Northern Ireland. These intrepid travellers cross the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge swinging 30 metres above the crashing waves. Unlike these adventurers, visitors unable to brave the journey back often have to be rescued by boat. Then enter the Mermaid’s Cave beneath the medieval ruins of Dunluce Castle. Finally venture south as our journey ends at the mist cloaked Mourne Mountains in Silent Valley.
