Ballypatrick Forest

Depending on how you get to the Glens of Antrim you might pass Ballypatrick Forest - no need to explain the derivation of that name, now, is there?

I'm not mad keen on the forests around these parts, 'cos mostly they are planted with various types of non-indigenous firs.  But on this occasion we did stop for a while, have a picnic and let the Hound stretch his legs.

We had a wee dander up the trail, as one does...

It was quite nice in places, I have to admit...

...although it did go up and down a lot.

  1. Well, I just have to say that I'm not too much into woods myself either. They can be nice in snaps though, like you manage to save them onto this piece of film. We got plenty of them over here... trees, you know... and huge woods stretching, well far away!
    I like open landscapes a bit more, which is probably why I live where I do. Nice to see other pieces of land though!! :))
