The company, run by Allan Hamilton provides mystery walking and driving trails across the south of Northern Ireland and aims to get people to switch off their TVs and games consoles and get out and about exploring the towns and cities of Northern Ireland, learning, and having fun. A Treasure Trail can best be described as a cross between a quiz and a guided walk, and has been compared to a giant game of Clued. Trailers complete a Trail in their own time and at their own pace, following the directions around the best historic and scenic sights of a location. Each Trail has clues to solve, and the answer to each clue can be found on a plaque, monument, building, etc. The Trails either take the form of a Murder Mystery, with Trailers eliminating suspects and weapons as they go, or a Treasure Hunt, with locations being crossed off a treasure map as each clue is solved. Participants can then submit their solution, and if they are right they will be entered into a cash prize draw. At the end of each year, there is a winner in every location. The Trails cost just £5 each and typically take 1.5 – 2 hours to complete and involve a walk of between 1.5 and 2 miles. There are plenty of places to stop for food or a drink en route and many Trails are wheelchair and pushchair friendly. Trails exploring Northern Ireland can be purchased online at www.treasuretrails.co.uk, by phone on 02838 336266 or at the tourist office and strategic tourist points in each town.
