Along the jagged edge of the island’s Atlantic coast, where the sea cliffs are over 100 mts in height, the walk moves westwards to Rinrawros Point taking in the view at the Lighthouse. The 3.5 hour / 8 km walk finally heads South East along the coast back to the meeting point at Beaver Island monument. Guided by Seamus, your local walking expert and guide, you will be introduced to the stunning local scenery, historical views and indigenous Donegal culture. This is a Grade 3 walk, mostly on bog and tracks, and roadways, suitable for walkers of moderate fitness.

A great place to blow the cobwebs away! This is a Grade 3 walk, suitable for walkers of moderate fitness. Terrain: Bog roads, lane ways, rough tracks and minor roads.
