We parked in the car park and headed off, on the sea front walk, to make the most of a sunny day. It really is a beautiful coast walk, dotted with benches here and there. Also outdoor adult gym equipment mid way. There's a colourful...More

We did this walk yesterday in the bright Ulster sunshine and enjoyed it immensely. Not a particularly difficult or strenuous walk though there are steps leading up towards the lighthouse, the view from there back towards the village is lovely. Part of the walk is...More

A nice little walk along the sea front with easily navigated paths (although needs some attention in places as subsiding). Walk along the “highway to health” past outdoors gym equipment and walk up the steep steps to the Blackhead lighthouse for a lovely view of...More

Blackhead path is a great walk. There are various routes along the cliff top or along shore. The walks end at the lighthouse. There currently is a section under lighthouse closed off due to rock falls (but still accessible if your really keen). The shore...More

You can't miss this beautiful walk and have a picnic ! We had a very sunny Easter Sunday walk and we enjoyed the day. It is a "must see" if you are visiting Northern Ireland. Bear in mind the only 10p loo is situated in...More

My husband and I came along this walk on Sunday by accident. The walk is brisk and windy, so wrap up warm. The scenery is breathtaking, and the path has historical sign posts along the way. Part of the path is closed, but you can...More

Great sunny day during the Christmas holidays, so we went to the famous Black Head Path for some exercise. There was a scattering of oystercatchers in a field by the path, shore birds with long, orange beaks. Up in the fields on Muldersleigh Hill I...More

This would be five stars if only the whole path was open. If you want to see the lighthouse, then take the high path and you can walk up around it. On a bright day, the views are amazing. Well worth a visit. Then pop...More

Best way to clear your head and get fresh air into your lungs. The Blackhead path is perfect whatever the weather - the caves suit a stormy setting, creating an eerie feel throughout the walk. The views from the cliffs are spectacular on a sunny...More
