I was looking for a looped walk locally that would give similar distance and height gain to the Maamturks challenge route. A friend suggested this one so a few of us went and did it. There's a tough pull up from the bridge in Glounreagh when you're 17km into the walk. You'll never get a route down here that's as difficult as the Turks challenge route in terms of terrain, gradient and navigation but it's great training.
