A template for waymarked walking?
by garrettd  12 Aug 2014
We did a linear walk over Seefin and Gouladane from the car park at V836381 A, taking the excellently way-marked route (Seefin Loop) to the top of Seefin and along the ridge all the way to the car park on the far side of Glan Lough at V891430 B. The ground conditions were good on account of recent dry weather and the views over the Beara Peninsula, from Knokowen to Dursey Island are spectacular. The waymarking is the best I have seen anywhere in Ireland and although, not desirable or appropriate in all walking locations, it should operate as a template for areas looking to attract more visitors where private land considerations need to be balanced with recreational access.
