Hill Walking in Tourmakeady:
Tourmakeady is situated at the base of the Partry Mountains and along the western shore of Lough Mask. The scenery is outstanding and it is the perfect for an evening stroll, or for the more energetic hillwalker. The local tourism group organised the mapping of some walks in the area from Finney to Tourmakeady. The maps are drawn up by Joe McDermott.. Walking in the hills inevitably means walking over bog or peat. Bog is the Gaelic word meaning soft and every hill walker knows exactly what this means.
(There are copies of the maps on the following pages but original copies may be obtained from the local Tourism Office. While every care has been taken in compiling these maps, Tourmakeady Tourism Group, it's servants or agents, are not liable for any loss, injury damage or inconvenience sustained or caused as a result of using these guides.)
Walk Number 3- The Glensaul Walk:
Follow the metalled road/track for 2.5 kms of gradual ascent with the Ownbrin River below in the valley. The track ends on the Plateau and care should be taken crossing the open country to the Sruffaunagreeve stream 700 metres from the track end. In cloud conditions a compass bearing would be advisable. Across the river veer north-east to reach the bog road 600 metres away and 100 metres lower down.
