This off road trail takes you horse riding higher and further out into the beautiful North Antrim Hills of Northern Ireland; at one point we have to dismount and lead our horses across an area of heather to connect to another track before riding on to a peak called Croaghan. With 360 degree panoramic views, this must rate as the best view in Northern Ireland if not the whole of Ireland. Horse riding here gives you breath-taking views over the Glens of Antrim looking north to Scotland’s Ayrshire Coast, Mull of Kintyre ( home to Paul Mc Cartney’s famous song)and Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland. It also looks out over Rathlin Island and on to Inishowen and Malin Head in Donegal the most northernly point in Ireland; then west across the River Bann to the Sperrin Mountains and south to the Mourne Mountains in Co Down Northern Ireland and to Slieve Beagh in Co. Monaghan which is in Southern Ireland. As you continue Horse riding with our local guide these off road trails will give you a sense of seclusion and tranquility as you look out over most of Northern Ireland.
