Ten minutes later, we continue our journey, passing through “Irish Town”, a small village area that was and is still used today by wealthy Kingstonians to get away from the Kingston heat, and work our way up to our second look out spot with magnificent views of the lush green valleys and peaks of the Blue Mountains. A short stop of five minutes and we continue driving up for a half hour more going above three thousand five hundred feet where we will stop at the old British barracks and parade ground in New Castle, St. Andrew. There you will see the southern most views of Kingston, Regimental insignia’s of Colonial times, the tallest point on the Western side of the Blue Mountains and an old seventeenth century canon.

From the park you can see the western side of Kingston completing its panoramic view. Our time here normally takes up to two hours.
