Lough Derg Walk
Pettigo, Co. Donegal
This walk is based on the route of a Pilgrimage path which has been in use since the 12th Century.

Today this route, which is fully sign-posted, extends through an area being managed by Coillte, the Irish Forestry organisation.

In addition its historical interest, the walk also offers exceptional lakeside views of Lough Derg and the surrounding countryside.

A number of spurs allow access to view points and sites of historic interest.
