Description of Trail

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.
