A moderate and gentle four-six hour hike of the spectacular Roundstone Bog complex. A very special walk. Features extensive rare bog habitat, quaking bog, a multitude of lakes and includes the historic Derrygimla site where ground breaking transatlantic communications took place (Marconi’s wireless telegraphy, Alcock & Brown’s flight landing spot). Distance is about 10km with some gentle climbing. Terrain is mainly very rough wet bogland, along with sheep track, long grass and surfaced minor road; requires waterproof boots with good ankle support and grip. Also bring some food, water and outdoor layers. Costs euro 40/person with places currently available for booking in advance. Involves a car drop as this is a linear walk.
