Did this walk last week. Beautiful walk, but VERY boggy in spots. Boots and gaiters are essential. Very reassuring to see the purple waymark signs. Not a sound except the lapping of the water of the lake, the song of the birds and the occasional baa - ing of the sheep.

Beautiful location, but boggy and wet underfoot. Would recommend boots and water-proofs. Watch out for the wooden board-walks as they can be hard to spot amongst the rushes

Starts of fine then decends into a not very pleasant slog through bog last kilometer fine. Lough Talt loop a far better option - lovely.
