    Today, you will follow the Glenariff River up the valley to the Forest Park of the same name. You will then follow a delightful nature trail with views across the Sea of Moyle to England and Scotland.

    8.5 Miles / 14 Km 4-6 Hrs 1250ft / 380 Metres

    In the morning you will be driven to a forest track below Orra Beg. Continue along paths and tracks across open moorland and through quiet forests before climbing once over the shoulder of Trostan and then down into Glenariff once again.

    Returning to Orra Beg, you now follow the trail in the opposite direction, north towards Ballycastle.

Follow the trails downhill to your guesthouse next to the sea.

    Take the short ferry trip to Rathlin Island in the morning. We recommend a trip to the West Lighthouse to visit the large seabird colony. Why not take a bus there and walk back? This will leave you plenty of time for a great little hike to the South Lighthouse in the afternoon.

    10.5 Miles / 17 Km 4-6 Hrs 820ft / 250 Metres
