This spectacular trail mainly follows bog track, open bogland and sheep path to access dramatically high cliffs, stunning ocean and expansive bog views. Underfoot is relatively dry and robust peat though a little soft in places. There are many sites of cultural, historical and environmental interest in the area and around Ceathrú Thaidhg is a living Gaeltacht.

Completed this walk on 1st August 2019. Beautiful scenery throughout, including bog, beach, cliffs hills. Very difficult in places. The loop is very well signed, black posts with purple arrows. Can imagine certain spots being very wet during winter months.
