Belfast
in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The mountain is 1,568 ft (478 m) tall, making it the highest of the Belfast
Belfast
Hills.[1] It extends north to the Antrim Plateau and shares its geology; consisting of a basaltic cover underlain by limestone and lias clay. Only recently have the Divis
Divis
area and its surrounding mountains been handed over to the National Trust; from 1953 to 2005, it was under the control of the Ministry of Defence. It was also used as a training area for the British Army. It might have been released earlier, but due to the period of unrest known as the Troubles, the British Government and military viewed the area as a useful vantage point, overlooking Belfast. Situated on the mountain is Divis
