Dan White’s Dander


Sunday 23rd July: Bus @ 10:00 am


A wonderful walk that has been the opening event of the festival for a number of years. Starting at Dan Whites Cottage at the top of the Kilfeaghan Road we recreate the journey this bachelor shepherd used to take a few days a week on his visits to Rostrevor. We follow the course of the Watergap River up the mountain before turning west for the final steep climb to the Mast on Slieve Martin. After a rest we then head down to Cloughmor and then on to Fiddlers Green to meet up with the large crowd who have gathered there for the outdoor concert and picnic.
