Our hike begins in Oldbridge situated close to Loch Dan. We start our ascent to Scarr immediately by taking forest trails until we reach the open mountain side. As we arrive out of the forest, we are greeted with scenic views towards the summit of Scarr and looking back towards Djouce and Luggala. We will continue up the spur at a relaxed pace on a rough trail while enjoying the panoramic views

Once on the summit of Scarr we will have a short break and, if the weather allows it, your mountain leader will point out the neighbouring mountains on view. The hard work in getting to the summit has paid off and we will retrace out steps along the summit ridge and descend towards Kanturk which sits slightly lower than Scarr (640m) at 527m.

We will then set our sights on Kanturk, heading off on rough open mountain side following an intermittent trail while enjoying views of Tonelagee to the left and spectacular views down to the Irish sea on our right. After arriving at the rocky and heathery knolls of Kanturk’s summit we will continue downhill towards the iconic Lock spit stone. This standing stone is an old boundary stone between townlands and is an iconic landmark on Kanturk. As we continue descending the rough path, views of Loch Dan will come into view.

We will continue down the spur towards Loch dan, finally entering lowland terrain again through a unique gate perched between large granite boulders. Following the access route, we will enjoy mixed forestry on pleasant trails with views of Loch dan until we finish our loop by returning to Oldbridge.
