  • This is a fantastic hill walk with unbelievable views. We completed this walk on a misty day but it didn’t take away from the views when we reached the top. Great walk for kids away from the Glens which have become so busy nowadays. It is a couple of miles walk from the caravan park across the road from the forest entrance but once you reach the public pathway towards the hill and start climbing it is well worth it! Would highly recommend

  • Really enjoyed this walk, lovely views of the surrounding hills and valley. A bit muddy at the top of the mountain, I wore trainers which were soaking wet by the end so next time I’ll wear hiking boots. Otherwise great walk!

    Took just under 3 hours parking at the Gortin Glen caravan park rather than the forest main car park.

    (Near the end coming through the farm there is a farm dog that chased me down the road away from the house, I’m not afraid of dogs but those that are may not enjoy this end to the beautiful walk.)

  • Wonderful medium length walk with stunning views throughout. A bit mucky so boots are best. Parking for 1 or 2 cars at the national school, that cuts out the long and slightly boring walk from Gortin Forest Park. Really loved it!
