Starting from the shores of Glencar Lake, we will follow a road/path towards Dooneens. There is a climb at the start but pace will be easy. Enjoy fabulous views over to Knocknarea enroute. We'll stop for a cuppa at the half way mark, then go off road for a while through wild heather and return via Hudson's Rd. You will be treated to the most incredible views over Sligo Bay, Truskmore, Leanne, the Leitrim Hills and Glencar Lake & Valley

There will be a gradual ascent and descent on the walk with regular breaks to enjoy the scenery. We will take you over wild bog and heather for about 30 mins. Spotted a grouse last time we were here!

Also spotted two birds of prey at Dooneens!

Please wear strong walking boots, bring waterproof clothes and a hot drink.
