Avoid blue route until mid-Sept 2016. (Expand pics)
Temp re-routing of Beara Way, near Knockoura
Thinking of visiting summits in the Slieve Miskish area (west end of the Beara peninsula)? Miskish Mtn, Knockoura or track 1340 for example.

We are informed that a section of the Beara Way between Castletownbere and Allihies will be closed for 5 6 weeks, from approximately the 1st of August. Coillte will be felling trees along this route and in the interest of safety we are diverting all walkers around this area for this time.

The new route will lead walkers towards Eyeries initially but at Knockgour instead of heading southwest to Allihies at Teernahillane, they will head north to Coulaghard then west for Allihies.
Please see the attached map; there will be temporary signs along the route to help.

On the attached map Dark Blue line indicates route between Allihies and Castletownbere where logging will occur from about 01st August for 6 weeks max.
Dotted green line is the re-route to take walkers to Allihies to Castletownbere or visa-versa.
