Unfortunately the Ballycroum loop walk is closed. Path was blocked with high gates, barb wire, electric fence – and very clear warning signs that it is forbidden to cross the farmland ahead. An alternative path could not be identified as the area is heavily overgrown with all kind of bramble. It seems that one farmer retracted the permission to walk that particular piece of the loop, which is a shame
This walk B takes about 2.5 hours through a forest and open ground with some wedge tombs along the way. Altoir Ultach is a tomb used as a Mass Rock in penal times. The trail walk is part of the National Looped Walks.
