About the Event

Wrap up warm for this torch light walk in the Belfast Hills.

We'll walk up the level tarmac path to the TV mast and across to Black Mountain where we'll see the lights of Belfast below and the city getting geared up for New Year's Eve.

(It costs £1.50 for handy pocket-sized LED torches in Asda that take AAA batteries).

Suitable for all abilities.

How to get to Divis

Leave M1 at Junction 2. Take the A55 (outer ring), signed Falls.

Go straight across the first two roundabouts. From dual carriageway, turn left onto Upper Springfield Road at the brown directional road sign bearing 'Divis and Black Mountain'.

Continue for about 2.5 miles, shortly after the national speed limit sign, turn right onto Divis Road (signposted with brown sign.

The turning is immediately at the sign so don't overshoot the turnoff onto Divis Road). National Trust car park is 0.5 miles along Divis Road on the left hand side. You'll see the cars there.

What to Bring

Please bring a torch, proper walking boots, warm clothing and waterproofs. You won't be able to proceed with the group without proper gear. Walking sticks/poles and gaiters are highly recommended but are not a necessity.
