    Route Description
    Located on the McAuley Farm, a stretch of land in memory of Ronan McAuley, a True Glens man who had a dream that more people would explore and enjoy Glendun and the exquisite views of the land that he called home. These trails provide rare access to one of the stunning Nine Glens of Antrim, Glendun. Ronan’s Way is located on a working farm so please respect the family property, land and their ability to manage their farm on your visit, as this walk has only been made possible by their generosity. Beginning at the carpark off the Glendun Rd you will find the trailhead panel and waymarker posts. This walk follows the green waymarkers. The green loop is the shortest and lowest route taking you up to Sevagh House and back down through grassy field along the Glen river. The diversity of natural habitat (woodland, peatland, farmland and the river) in Glendun means that there is an abundance of wildlife to see. You may be lucky to spot some of our most impressive mammals such as the otter, fox and pine marten. There are lots of different bird species including siskins in the woodland, and grouse, skylarks and the occasional curfew higher up the mountain. There are a number of birds of prey in the skies such as the merlin, hen harrier and buzzard. There are also lots of wildflowers and insect species throughout the farm. Please note as this is working farmland livestock may be present and the ground is often very mucky underfoot so walking boots are strongly recommended. A number of stiles are also present along all routes. As the walks are situated within a glen, steep sections are present on all walks however this makes for incredible views across the glen. A couple of benches are situated along the routes so you can sit back and enjoy a moment of contemplation as you spend time admiring the views.
