Castle Archdale Yellow Route
Shorter than the description indicates, more like 2.5 miles and the way marking is confusing in places. This doesn’t really matter as there is so much of interest. History, woodland flowers, stunning views of Lough Erne
Looking froward to returning and trying out a Hyde bike – they looked fun!
