Sliabh Liag and Pilgrim’s Path Loop

(0 reviews)

Combining the spectacular cliff top path from Bunglass with the ancient pilgrimage to the ruins of McBric's church and well. This hike blends breathtaking views, sheer open cliffs with wild untamed nature and ancient history. Due to the terrain and open cliffs this is classed as a strenuous walk.
