Dear Fellow Walkers!

We would like to extend to you a warm welcome to our Walking Club.

The Sliabh Liag Hillwalkers is a community based walking group that was formed in December 2009. The overall aim of the club was to promote the interests of hill walking and rambling activities within our area. The club also aims to promote awareness of the need to maintain access, conservation and protection of the Slieve League Cliffs and surrounding hills.

These walks provide a much need physical and social outlet for many people and at the same time enjoying the fantastic views available in the area.

The walk from Bun Glas to Malin Beg via the summit of Sliabh Liag is described by Joss Lynam in his book Best Irish Walks as “The classic and most popular route which traverses the whole exhilarating crest of the mountain, and the one which draws most walkers time and time again”. So, it is not surprising, that the sea cliffs at Sliabh Liag are listed as number 18 in the Lonely Planet top 25 Irish experiences for tourists.

Donegal: Hidden Walking Country written by Thomas Hollowell and Katie Kelly Bell; Slieve League Mountains to One Man's Pass.‘ The Slieve League (Sliabh Liag) cliffs easily compete with the more-popular Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland in both sublimity and grandeur. Located on the southwest coast of Donegal (OS Map sheet 10, available in Killybegs or Kilcar), a clear day walking here is divine. With views of the Atlantic Ocean, the not-so-distant mountains of Sligo, and the calming Donegal Bay, it's a purely placid picture.’ – Why not come and discover this for yourself!

Take this amazing opportunity to explore something different and discover what South West Donegal has to offer. There are various walks at different levels so there is something to suit everyone!

This area has some of the most amazing scenery in the country, rich in archaeology and with a wide variety of flora and fauna there is much of geological interest.
