The Mourne Mountains are one of the most scenic districts in Northern Ireland. Situated in the south east this mountain range contains 7 summits rising above 700 meters. The Mournes are composed of hard, acidic granite. The area is an example of a glaciated landscape. These Heather covered, granite mountains inspired the Percy French song with the words ""Where the Mountains of Mournes sweep down to the sea"" (""Its always mentioned"") Most of the high summits are grouped together in an area only 7 miles wide. At 850meters Slieve Donnard is the highest mountain in the Mournes range and also the highest mountain in Northern Ireland. From the summit (""if its not raining"") there are scenic views of Northern Ireland and towards England, Scotland, Isle of Man and Ireland. The Mourne wall was built in the 1900s (1904 - 1922) to enclose the Silent Valley reservoir. It is a granite wall (22 miles long and up to 8ft high and 3ft wide) that links 15 of the main peaks in the area including Slieve Donard. The Mourne area is used for leisure, agriculture and forestry and the provision of water for most of Northern Ireland.
