We hiked up Lackavrea after having found a walk description in the Walking World Ireland March / April 08 issue. You can start and finish this walk at the car park for Doon Island (GR: M035, 494).

The walk starts on a paved road which turns very soon into a nice path. Gradually the path becomes smaller and smaller until it almost disappears. Nevertheless navigation isn't very difficult because you can always keep close to the Lough Corrib and Lackavrea (pictured) is the only substantial hill on the lakeside. This is also the reason why this walk and this little hill have something to offer, because the views to the East over the Lough Corrib as well as the ones to the West to the Maumturks are absolutely stunning.

The whole walk described in the magazine covers a distance of 13 km (450 m ascent). In other word it is not demanding, it's very unlikely to meet anybody else (not like Errigal on a sunny Saturday) and the views are worth the effort. The time in the WWI has been estimated with 4 - 4 1/2 hours, although I have to say that it took us more like 5 hours, which might come down to lacking experience in bog walking.
