Slieve Martin, Mourne Mountains

Slieve Martin, Mourne Mountains

The cairn and marker at the summit of the mountain. The Mournes aren't very tall, but they're steep. The tops are the treeless grassland and heather called heath. This is the kind of landscape Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum hiked across in the first part of The Silver Chair.
