Walking up Slieve Binnian in the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland

Slieve Binnian, the third highest mountain in Northern Ireland (747 meters/ 

2,451 ft), is a special mountain because it is believed that the ice never reached its top during the ice age and so it retains unique granite tor rock-formations, towering several stories high.

Abernethy Round Tower and Museum Doors Open Day

This tower is one of two towers of the Irish Celtic type remaining in Scotland. It was likely built in the later 11th Century. The ground around the tower has been raised more recently and in the past there would have been a rope ladder leading up to the door, which could be pulled up to protect the people inside in case of an attack. The village of Abernethy was once the centre of a Pictish kingdom, who used the nearby Iron Age hill-fort ‘Castle Law’, which you can see from the top of the tower. Later on it was the seat of the Celtic Bishopric. Leaning against the tower is a Pictish stone and next to it hangs an iron collar, which was used to publicly shame people for wrong-doings.

A little throwback to autumnal colours, when there are hardly any colours at the moment: Perthshire ‘mood-swings’, the day started off gloomy, with a low cloud shrouding the City of Perth. Halfway through our walk the sun came through and revealed many beautiful autumn colours.
