Inishowen Head Loop Walk
by pearnett  23 Sep 2018
As I parked up in the car park beside the Stroove Lighthouse I then began the loop walk around Inishowen Head in an anticlockwise direction. The first part of this walk is along a road past a few houses and up quite a short steep incline and as you come to a makeshift parking bay you look out across the Irish sea towards Scotland the island you see is Islay in the distance and turning right you then see Rathlin Island of the Irish coast. As you walk on you come to Portkill where St Columba set foot on Irish soil for the last time before setting off to Iona. You then come to a steady decline before turning left into a long incline over quite a boggy area before coming onto a good firm path which brings you to the height of the walk, there is what appears to be a standing stone on the top of the hill which may temp you to go and see it but don’t bother it’s just a pile of bricks stacked on top of each other and not worth walking through the very boggy patch. You then continue on before descending down a steep track towards the R241 turning left and back round to the car park. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/928/comment/20070/
