Along Lough Dan from the Old Bridge

This walk is from the cul-de-sac that runs alone the side of Lough Dan, whose entrance is just beyond the Old Bridge on the Roundwood – Laragh road. There are places on this cul-de-sac to safely park and just continue on foot. The sealed road will continue to climb up over the lough and then into the slopes of Kanturk mountain. After crossing a stream the public section of the road seems to end but turn left and after a short distance a sign indicate a footpath to Kanturk mountain. This footpath will take you up over Lough Dan with spectacular views of the lough and surrounding mountains. If you wish to go further then continue on until the footpath crosses a gravel road going down to the bottom of the glen. I took this road but I did not venture far when it ended at the bottom of the glen.
