This loop circles around Inishturk Island's Cairn Hill on surfaced roadways and sandy tracks and features a wide panorama of the mountains and islands of West Mayo and Connemara. It visits the lonely Lough Coolaknick and the lagoon of Portadoon is only a short off-trail detour accessed by a steep channel through cliffs to the sea.

Caroline from Mayo

This is a lovely walk on a beautiful island. Well worth the journey and you can even finish with a dip in the pristine ocean.
