The walk is fairly straightforward EXCEPT ON THE DESCENT at the south end of the walk to the Gap of Dunloe. While we did manage to get down using the route shown in good weather, we would not advise this in poor conditions. Our suggestions would be either to do the route in reverse, so going up the steep ground to Drishana and with better route visibility or to swing further south before descending.
