Harvey’s say…
HARVEY Superwalker maps for walkers at 1:25,000 and 1:30,000 scales.
The clarity of the mapping has been improved to enable more people to read it without their glasses and the map is uncluttered by information irrelevant to the walker added to which its precise contouring and delicate hill shading give an immediate picture of the ground.

Mourne Mountains
Mourne Mountains: The Mourne Mountains, also called the Mournes or Mountains of Mourne are a granite mountain range in County Down in the south east of Northern Ireland. They include the highest mountains in Northern Ireland and the province of Ulster. The highest of these is Slieve Donard at 850 metres (2790ft). The Mournes is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been proposed as the first national park in Northern Ireland. The area is partly owned by the National Trust and sees a large number of visitors every year. The Mourne Wall is among the more famous features in the Mournes. It is a 35km (22mls) drystone wall that crosses fifteen summits, constructed to define the boundaries of land purchased by the Belfast Water Commissioners in the late 1800s. Also included in this map is The Mourne Way Long Distance Footpath.
