WALK DESCRIPTION

Change of walk from Melmore Head to Fanad Head.

Saturday 18 May 2024  –  Ballyhiernan Beach / Fanad Lighthouse / Great Pollet Sea Arch, Donegal    OS2    Grade C

 
Saturday’s walk is to the Fanad Peninsula, Donegal and will be in two parts. 
 
Part 1  –  Starting at Ballyhiernan Bay is a beautiful long sandy beach (1.5 miles in length), followed by a short coastal walk, grassy path, a bit uneven in places (just under 1 mile).  Return walk is via the same route.  Total distance approx 5 miles.
 
Part 2  –  Drive to Fanad Lighthouse for stunning views if weather is favourable.  From there a 2 mile drive to Great Pollet Sea Arch car park.  Total walk to sea arch and back, under 1.5 miles.
 
Boots and poles essential.
 
Directions:  Omagh, Strabane, Letterkenny, Ramelton, Milltown,  Kerrykeel.  There are three left turns after Kerrykeel so I recommend either follow myself or use the EIRCODE  F92 X5K5 which will take you directly to start of walk (Ballyhiernan Beach car park on right hand side of road).
