We commenced the hike along the way-marked Silver River eco-walk. The well-illustrated information boards along the gorge and waterfall of the Silver River explained the geology of the area over 400 million years. Take time to enjoy and understand the information on this section of the walk.
The hike then joins the way-marked Slieve Bloom Way, which seems to have undergone some re-routing in places. We encountered a little confusion at May Scully's Cottage at N 244 064 where one of the way-marked posts had fallen.
Entering the wooded area approaching Kinnitty Castle, we encountered deer prancing across our path, and there is an array of tracks some of which are a short-cut to the trail end. In retrospect, we should have finished the hike beside the castle itself, which has designated parking for hikers and cyclists. Having crossed the bridge across the Camcor River on the final approach to the castle, there is a well preserved circle of standing stones on your left at N 204 056. Just beside the castle stands the Kinnitty High Cross at N 203 058. And the food and hospitality in the medieval atmosphere of Kinnitty Castle was excellent!
