Local Walks

There are some fabulous local walks in and around Slane.  

The ramparts - on one side, this will take you towards Newgrange, and the other, will take you along the castle grounds. Both meander along the Boyne with beautiful serenity, definitely worth a stroll.

Littlewood forest – is just outside the village, again offering a lovely peaceful but shorter walk.
