The northwest of Ireland provides a diversity of walks, from the wild, untamed landscape of Donegal, with its mountains, sea-cliffs and glens, to the gentler hills, green valleys and picturesque escarpments of Sligo and Leitrim.

This guidebook describes 27 walks of various grades in this fascinating part of Ireland that has inspired poets, and is rich in folklore and history. Quality photographs and specially-drawn maps will inspire one to get the walking boots on and start exploring this majestic landscape. Since most routes are not signposted or way-marked, an up-to-date guidebook is essential. Walk descriptions also include material on the natural history, folklore, geology and place-names of the area.
