During the past few years walking has become increasingly popular right across Northern Ireland, as many people have been discovering, and in some cases rediscovering, great places to get out and about.
Over the next eight weeks, presenters from BBC Northern Ireland will team up to take to the highways and byways across all six counties of Northern Ireland.
The Big Walk series begins on Sunday (May 29) on BBC Radio Ulster and BBC Sounds at 6.30pm, with Declan Harvey and Lynette Fay, who take a dander and chat as they walk around Florence Court in County Fermanagh, meeting people along the way.
Declan Harvey says: “We’re delighted to be getting out and about and meeting everyone again after the past couple of years. Most of us are now more appreciative of the beautiful scenery on our doorstep, so we’d like to come along and explore it with you.”
Lynette Fay says: “Get in touch – tell us about your favourite walk, what you love about it, and why it is worth a visit, and your favourite BBC Radio Ulster and BBC Radio Foyle presenter could be on their way to join you for a stroll.”
Among those also taking part in the series will be: Barra Best and Anne-Marie Wallace, who walk up Divis and Black Mountain; Stephen Nolan and Vinny Hurrell, who will take a walk down around Strangford Lough; Connor Phillips and Linda McAuley walking and talking from South Armagh into County Louth; while Sarah Brett and Michael Bradley will be on Downhill Strand, and Gemma Bradley and Hugo Duncan take a stroll through Gortin Glen.
