Summer evenings offer stunning views down the Collin Valley

People come to Divis and the Black Mountain for many reasons. Some come for a breath of fresh air and a stretch of the legs, others visit to look out for the diversity of wildlife. Some bring family and friends to show them the stunning views across Belfast and Lough Neagh, others for exercise or training. People come alone and others come as part of a large group. Everybody’s experience is different and on Divis and the Black Mountain we love to see your photos and hear your stories.
