Hill Walks

The following galleries are of photos from hill walks we have taken over the past couple of years. Some are part of the National Loop Walks.

This walk is the longer (16 km) of two National Looped Walks which runs around the tip of the Sheep's Head Peninsula. It begins just west of the village of Kilcrohane. It runs along footpaths, paved roads and tracks on the south side of the peninsula to a height of 239 metres on Ballyroon Mountain before running to the lighthouse at the tip of Sheep's Head and then returning on the north side of the peninsula.

Sheep's Head is the smallest and the middle peninsula of the three peninsulas that comprise Southwest Cork. In Irish it is called Rinn Mhuintir Bháire or Head of the People of Báire. Báire was a member of the Corca Laoighdhe who settled here in pre-Christian times. The name sometimes anglicised as Muntervary.
