Length: 5.0 mi • Est. 2 h 17 m
This route is a nice stroll along the lake to the castle with nice views the entire way. The path is gravel, clearly marked, and quite open with no shade. You have the opportunity to take the bus back from the castle for €1.50 if you only want to do one way.Show more

Note: Users have reported that there are lots of hidden undercover waterways and the trail is very boggy, so watch your step. When starting out from Billy's pen look for the running water stream. Follow to the tree and head off at 2 o clock direction and you will come to a gate, always close the gate after you. Good waterproof boots highly recommended.Show more

Walk to Glenveagh Castle and avoid the parking charges. A lovely walk through the hills of Glenveagh that starts off at the birthplace of St. Columkille.Show more
