Start & finish:

From Bawnboy (N87), take a left in the village of Swanlinbar onto the Glangevlin/ Blacklion Road (Mill Street). After 0.5 km turn right up a small road. After 200m there is a small car park and picnic area on the right. Walk up a narrow lane which becomes a rough mountain path underfoot. There are stone walls on either side.

 

The path veers left and into the forest along a steep path. The climb continues for 1km emerging at the top onto a flat field. There are fabulous views over the Bog and Cuilcagh Mountain. Turn right along the field passing a ruin on your left and a tree in the middle. It is thought that this was a fairy fort.

 

Walk through the field, veering right and come down the hill. After 1.5km, there is a small path to your left. Turn here and follow the path back into Swanlinbar.
