This part of Donegal has frequently been described as a walker's paradise. In Robert Lloyd Praeger's famous 1937 book (the environmentalist's bible) called The Way That I Went, he wrote ..."The best county to walk in, in Ireland, is Donegal". He also went on to describe Horn Head as ..."the finest headland in Ireland".
There is local acknowledgement that there are many fine walks, at all levels, in the county but the jewels in the crown were almost a well kept secret and like so many wonderful natural amenities in this, Ireland's "forgotten county", walking as a recognised outdoor activity has largely been underrated, undeveloped and largely undiscovered or confined to the realm of 'mountaineering', for specialists only.
