This loop starts at the Post Office in Skibbereen and passes close to Lough Abisdealy on its way to the coast at Tragumna beach from where it tours along the headlands, bays and promontories of this part of West Cork to Castletownsend and back to Skibbereen. There are marvellous views out over the Atlantic. It includes several steep and some very steep hills and care is required on some sections and at some junctions.
