On minor and unpaved roads this varied and interesting walk loops through the countryside southwest of Rathlackan, starting along the shore of Lackan Bay and passing Rathlackan Court Tomb, with its associated house and enclosure walls, then a Gazebo. Fine views over Lackan Bay and Strand and Kilcummin Head and expansive vistas across the Mayo, Sligo and Donegal countryside.
