A-B. Starting from the mapboard on Inny Strand, follow the purple arrow along a wire fence in the direction of Inny Strand. After 30m pass a stile on your left – you will return to this point at the end of your walk. After 200m cross a small stream and continue to follow the strand for over 1.5km to reach a roadway at the entrance to Inny Estuary. Turn left here.

B-C. Follow the minor roadway for 500m to reach a T-junction with the main R567 - turn right and, almost immediately, turn left onto another minor roadway. Continue to follow the purple arrows along this roadway for over 1km to reach a junction with a track on your left. Turn left here.

C-D. Now the loop takes you along a track through an area of bog – it turns right after 200m and exits through forestry to reach a junction with a bog road. Turn left here. Continue to follow the bog road for 1.3km (crossing a number of stiles) to reach a point where the loop leaves the bog road and turns left through a metal gate. Cross a short section of bog to exit onto the R567. Turn right here.

D-A. Follow this surfaced road for approx 200m to reach a stile (and gateway) on your left. Cross the stile to join a farm roadway and enjoy the last 400m back to the trailhead.
