The Bluestack Way: Lough Eske to Letterfad

The Bluestack Way: Lough Eske to Letterfad is a 10.1 mile point-to-point trail located near Donegal, Donegal, Ireland that features a lake. The Bluestack Way is a 51km national waymarked way through often remote areas of County Donegal with spectacular views as it traverses the Bluestack Mountains. It connects Donegal town with the town of Ardara on the west coast, taking in the town of Glenties on its route following directional yellow arrows and yellow 'walking man' signs familiar to walkers worldwide. Along the way, the trail passes by Lough Eske, climbs to the secluded Eglish valley and winds its way along the Eanymore river and across the foothills of the Bluestacks to reach an area called Disert, where an ancient holy well and graveyard are worth a visit. West of Disert, the route crosses the Bluestacks range over rough and remote high moorland terrain between Binbane and Cloghmeen Hill before descending along the Owenroe river to reach an old bog road. This is followed across isolated bogland at Meenawannia to reach Glenties. From Glenties an easy half day walk joins the Owenea river and follows the run of the river, taking the route to its destination in the town of Ardara.
