Again, the use of a mountain bike is highly recommended for this route, if you are a solo walker. I left my bike in a ditch at the side of the road, east of Sawel and drove around to the start, just west of the village of Crannagh. The walking route itself is quite straightforward and is simply a case of following the ridge - providing, of course, that the visibility is good. This day it was perfect and the views are outstanding! I could see Errigal and the other main peaks of Donegal; Cuilcagh, in Cavan/Fermanagh and down to the Mourne mountains, and Ailsa Craig, off the Scottish coast...probably the best views in Ireland!
The cycle back to the car is mostly downhill except for a few small sections before Crannagh and takes around 30 mins.
