We went off up the coast to Killough to a plant swap event this weekend, an on the way home discovered one of our favourite views ever of the Mournes.  The A2 from Killough to Clough is surely one of the most picturesque routes we’ve been on and is definitely a road trip we’d recommend to visitors, especially if they are visiting Castle Ward, as there’s a road running straight from Killough to the estate.

The view looks across the sea with Murlough Bay to the right, and Newcastle in the distance beneath the Mourne Mountains. They looked almost blue in the afternoon sun, and if it wasn’t for the distinctive outline, you’d swear this was the meditteranean.
