Glenregan Loop


Back again, this time to tackle the Glenregan Loop. Having visited the previous week and done the Glinsk Castle Loop I now had the knowledge of which direction to head from the trail head. Once you enter the forest area, look for the display board to the right, which shows a map of the Glenreagan loop in red dots. To the right of this a trail descends past a small picnic area. It is up this trail one must ascend towards the ruins of Glinsk Castle, and along this path you will eventually find the red circular way-markers that will lead you around the loop.
If there were a way-marker at the trail head, it would be most helpful, but alas I couldn’t find one.

The trail is well kept and for the most part well marked, though there were a few occasions where the red marker would have helped, but seemed to have gone missing, so take the downloadable map with you. Also, take snacks as it will take a full 3 hours to complete without breaks. There are several picnic spots along the route for refreshments and enjoying the views, so bring something to snack on and keep your energy up. Parts of the trail follow relatively steep climbs that will definitely stretch your muscles and get your heart rate going, so take your time and enjoy the views.
