The first hour is spent walking along a rough low level track towards to waterfall at the back of Loch an Dún. Next comes the challenging bit – a steep 250m climb up to the top of the waterfall on its eastern side, subject of course to the river being crossable. A good head for heights is required for this section. Heading in a NE direction through rough ground at times we pick out an established track and aim for Gob an Iolar (474m) before descending due North to Ballyduff Graveyard, where we will have left some cars.
