The Wild Atlantic Way – The River Walk Dungloe
“Walking is a man’s best medicine.”
The River Walk
The River Walk is located in the town of Dungloe, a few miles from my home. It has been developed to provide two walking routes alongside a lake, a river, and some outstanding scenery. I have been enjoying a group walk, organised by The Rosses Community Project, on Wednesday mornings during the month of July.
Both routes cross a bridge over the river:
The longer route takes us around the lake:
We pass peat drying in bundles, and bog cotton in abundance:
The river flows peacefully onwards:
Fuschia, heather and wild flowers smile back at us as we walk.
The group stops off for a welcome cup of tea and a chat. The weather has been warm and dry and the walk has attracted a good turnout.
Last week, I headed back alone and discovered there are faeries living quietly among the trees:
I spotted more fairy doorways with a rope ladder and a washing line:
I am incredibly thankful to have joined the group on these magical walks.
