This is an amazing therapeutic walk and I would highly recommend it for anyone who needs to not only exercise the body but to exercise the mind. Fabulous on a sunny day but even better on a wet and windy day. The path is closed...More

We parked in the car park and headed off, on the sea front walk, to make the most of a sunny day. It really is a beautiful coast walk, dotted with benches here and there. Also outdoor adult gym equipment mid way. There's a colourful...More

Blackhead path is a great walk. There are various routes along the cliff top or along shore. The walks end at the lighthouse. There currently is a section under lighthouse closed off due to rock falls (but still accessible if your really keen). The shore...More

You can't miss this beautiful walk and have a picnic ! We had a very sunny Easter Sunday walk and we enjoyed the day. It is a "must see" if you are visiting Northern Ireland. Bear in mind the only 10p loo is situated in...More

My husband and I came along this walk on Sunday by accident. The walk is brisk and windy, so wrap up warm. The scenery is breathtaking, and the path has historical sign posts along the way. Part of the path is closed, but you can...More

Great sunny day during the Christmas holidays, so we went to the famous Black Head Path for some exercise. There was a scattering of oystercatchers in a field by the path, shore birds with long, orange beaks. Up in the fields on Muldersleigh Hill I...More
