Slieve League

slieve-leagueGo left in the village of Carrick, signposted Bunglas and Slieve League. Teelin village with its colourful pub lies ahead. Ahead of the village a signposted will direct you to Bunglas, left and Slieve League Walk, right.

Go after the Bunglas sign, where the road winds around the southern slopes of Slieve League. On reaching a farm gate, open it and drive through, ensuring you close the gate behind you. Leave your car and walk the 2-3 km to the cliffs. If you prefer to drive you will miss some of the magic of this remarkable area. The enormous panoramas presented to you from this road can appear different in every segment. Deep blue skies come into view next to blue grey clouds of rain which bolt sea and sky together. Further across this ever changing canvas, beams of light, diffused by wisps of thin cloud, will gild the sea, warming the cool grey water into pools of liquid gold. The unique Sligo mountains stretch across the horizon as far south as Bricklieve with its ancient megalithic cemetery. Relish the view of Donegal Bay that majestically swoops towards you, while to your right, there is a lake at eye level as you walk upwards to see the jagged tops of Slieve League cutting the scudding clouds. While you reach the end of the road there is plenty of room to turn a car. Go to the right of the sheer and awesome cliff face at Bunglas, reputedly the highest marine cliff in Europe, rising, over 606m above the ocean. There is also a pass that will take you to the summit of Slieve League from here but the climb is not for the faint hearted and should be approached with extreme caution. There are also ruins of a church with some early Christian hermitages lying near the pass. The majority of people will be content with the views from the track next to the road. Coming back by foot, you will see a ruin impossible position at the end of Carrigan Head to your right. There was a watchtower and was part of a chain of such towers built to help defend the north west coast during the Napoleonic threat of the early 19th century. Go back via the farm gate to the sign for Slieve League walk. You will get to the top of Slieve League by a less precipitous route than that offered by One Man's Pass. It is a far longer route by foot to the summit. Strolling on the eastern flank of Slieve League, there is a spectacular wilderness of rocks, streams and a deep, rugged valley to your left as you ascend the narrow track.
