Rambling on the Rocks
Rambling on the Rocks aims to take walkers on a geological journey across all of Northern Ireland’s well-known, and some lesser known, natural landscapes.
We are very fortunate in Northern Ireland to have some of the most diverse geology in the world, and the guide provides information on just how special these landscapes are. Packed full of interesting information on history, archaeology, plants, wildlife and folklore the book contains walks featuring many famous natural landscapes of Northern Ireland such as the Giant’s Causeway along with some not so famous landscapes allowing the reader to explore new locations with practical information such as where to park or get refreshments.
Published as part of the Geological Survey Northern Ireland’s 70th anniversary celebrations, the book contains 20 walks in total; three in each county and two in Belfast, graded to cater for all abilities and highlighting the very best of Northern Ireland’s natural landscapes. Each walk has been illustrated with exceptional photography from renowned local photographers Esler Crawford, Alistair Hamill and Chris Hill.
