This is a moderate 10.5km walk on Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran Islands located off the coast of Co. Galway, Ireland.

The cargo ship Plassey, which was shipwrecked in the 1960's can be seen from this route, as the boat has been pushed up past the high tide mark by strong Atlantic waves. All crew memebers were saved by the people of Inisheer from the distressing ship.
