Enjoy the Great Outdoors - Glens of Antrim
This unique long distance walk route cuts a scenic route through the Antrim Coast and Glens, explores a high coastal plateau and encompasses some of the most enjoyable upland walking in County Antrim.
Dramatic scenery, isolated hills and fantastic history are just some of the treats on offer. This route can be boggy so good footwear, waterproof clothing and advanced preparation is strongly advised. For those who come prepared this route offers walkers unrivalled views over towards both Slemish and the Coast.
This 22 mile linear route begins in Glenarm village, widely recognised as one of the prettiest villages in the Glens of Antrim. The castle here was built in the early 17th century by Sir Randall McDonnell and today is the home of Viscount Dunluce. Leave Glenarm on the Town Brae Road and at the top of the hill turn right and walk for 2 miles.
At the trail marker, go inland. This takes you over Black Hill (381m) and Scawt Hill (368m) for about 6 miles. Cross another road towards the Sallagh Braes, for another 4 miles. The Sallagh Braes, (see picture), are a semi-circular basalt escarpment with wonderful views out to sea.
These were formed when glaciers cut into unstable slopes and caused a massive land slip, creating cliffs 2km long and 100m high. Turn left at the next road and a few metres later turn right down a stone-walled lane, then across more fields. Note: this section can be wet under foot.
At the next road, turn right for half a mile and then take a left turn at a stile for the top of Agnews Hill (474m), a distance of about 5 miles. At the bottom of the hill, veer right along a track. Then crossing a wooden bridge follow this rough road for 2 miles until you see signs for Greenmount Hill Farm. Turn right at the farm and follow the signs along the lanes and open land ahead. At Shillanavogy, turn right for a short distance, then left and go across more open fields with Slemish at the end. There is a short gentle walk from here down to the Slemish Car Park.
This walking route is mostly off road with some hilly sections. Accessible toilet facilities and refreshments can be found at Glenarm, Larne, Broughshane and Ballymena. For more information on this route and other walking routes in the area please visit www.walkni.com
