Welcome to Mid-Ulster Walking Club (Est.1989)

Affiliated to Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs.
Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed. Mid-Ulster Walking Club and Cookstown Council,in the past, organised Sperrintrek walks during the year. The club has a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have been to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran.  In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. Shorter mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, although no shorter, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape. Occasional trips abroad are organised independently from within the Club. We organise our own training sessions.                   2016

Hi everyone, I hope all those on the Spring Trip have fully recovered and all those who weren't there, are keen to get back out on the hills. Our next walk is coming up this Sunday 22nd May and we are off to one of the most remote areas in Ireland,North Donegal where we are trekking the Knockalla route across the Fanad Peninsula. This A/B linear walk (approx 6.5 - 7 miles) starting near Kerrykeel and finishing near Port Salon will be led by Brian McGarvey who assures us of magnificent views of the wild and rugged North Donegal coastline. The terrain may be boggy at times so gaiters would be recommended. There will be a bus pick-up at the following places. Note earlier departure times, due to the longer journey (approx 2 hours). Also seats on this bus will be £15 to cover the cost of the extended distance. Those travelling from Portadown/Lurgan area can meet at the usual place in Seagoe Drive to car-share to Dungannon. Stangmore roundabout      07.50 South Tyrone Hospital        07.55 Asda Cookstown                  08.10 Please let me know by Thursday if you wish to come along and where you intend to board, so I can book the right size bus.
