Route Description

From the parking area beside the public toilets, follow the gravel path around the edge of the lough in either direction. Moor Lough and it`s shoreline have been developed as a Dept. of Culture, Arts and Leisure fishery. Moorlough has several beaches and a segregated paddling area available for use. A gravel track which circumnavigates the lough makes most of the shoreline accessible for all.
