Mamore to Straid Walk
The Mamore to Straid walking route goes from the car park at the viewing area at the Mamore Gap through the Butler’s Glen and down to the waterfall walk car par beside the Glen House B&B and tea rooms. The Butlers Glen Loop walk starts at the same point and they both share part of the way.
The route is 5.7 km one way, 10.4 km round trip. It should take around 1.5 – 2.5 hours one way, 3 – 5 hours return for walking. It is also used as a mountain bike route, but it is a tough ride and should only be done by experienced mountain bikers.
If you are going back leave yourself plenty of time. The path uses black marker posts with green arrows on a white background.
The walk offers fantastic views of North Inishowen and the Atlantic Ocean. The route follows old bog roads and open ground, which can be very wet so please wear good waterproof footwear.
The weather can change very quickly so have rain gear with you and plenty of water.
The walk has some climbs and rough surfaces so walkers should be a reasonable level of fitness and experience.
At the waterfall car park, there are picnic benches for having your lunch or pop into the Glen House tea room for a bite to eat.
Butler’s Glen Loop starts from the car park at the Mamore Gap viewing point, with it’s magnificent views over Urris and the Atlantic ocean.

You walk up from the car park to the top of Butlers Glen then walk along the ridge on the right-hand side, which once you get to the end will give you spectacular views over Tullagh Bay.
It is then a steep walk down to the bog road which will take you back up the glen and then follow your original walk back to the car park at the Mamore Gap.
This is a hard strenuous walk and you should wear appropriate all-weather hill walking clothing and footwear.
