We will travel by train departing Belfast Central Station at 9.20 arriving Bellarena station at 11.00am. giving us time to socialise, read the Sunday papers, play cards or prepare yourselves for the day ahead with energy drinks and snacks. So, let the train take the strain and give our faithful drivers a break!
There are two walks available –
The shorter walk is circular and begins and ends at Bellarena railway station.
The longer walk is linear and begins at Bellarena railway station and ends at Castlerock railway station.
Binevenagh is on a remarkable plateau overlooking the Magilligan
Peninsula with a view out over Lough Foyle to the Inishowen Peninsula of Co Donegal.
From the station we will walk up to the western end to the top of the plateau and after our descent from the eastern end there will be an option for a shorter walk back to Bellarena station to catch a Belfast bound train home. The shorter walk is about 6 miles in total.
The longer walk will take us on via the beach (no Bishop’s Road this year!) to catch the train from Castlerock.
