Barnaslingan

These woods could be described as the twin of Carrickgiogan, not only are the two woods close together but the car parks are only a stone throw away from each other. If it is the twin it is also the Cinderella. The car park is permanently closed and growth is reclaiming the paths in places, but it is still well worth a visit.

There are two good walks in these woods.

The first walk is a gentle walk that will take you to the summit of the hill and back down again by a different route.

This is an easy walk of 1 hour and a climb of 35 metres.

Start the walk by the way of the barrier in the photo.

When the trail turns to the right, go straight ahead onto the rough path (shown in the above photo), go to the summit and then down the other side (a short distance), and the views looking down into "The Rockly Valley", shown on the following photos are available to you.
