When visiting Belfast, why not take a walk in the beautiful hills which look down on the city, including Cave Hill and Divis?
The Belfast Hills are thought to be the inspiration for Jonathan Swift's novel, Gulliver's Travels as the hills are the embodiment of a sleeping giant safeguarding the city.
The Belfast Hills has a number of main sites which are open to the public:
1. Carnmoney Hill
2. Cave Hill Country Park
3. Divis and the Black Mountain
4. Ligoniel Park and Dams
5. Colin Glen Forest Park
