If you love nature and scenic walks I can defiantly recommend a visit! On the castle's side there is a lovely walking trail and ramp just off the road that runs along the water.

Beautiful drive with incredibly scenery. Couldn’t find the walkway but given the weather a drive was probably better.

Had a lovely walk along the Lake shore, lots of wildlife to see and hear. Quite roads with very little traffic.

Lough Eske is a beautiful lake in Donegal .Harveys Point Hotel nestles on its shores. Two swans inhabit the lake and raise their young there .It is most magical at night as the moon casts her silvery pathway across the water.

Beautiful lough in a stunning setting with the mountains wrapped around it in the distance, lovely to go for a walk around and at Harveys point were we went for a walk it is right beside the two hotels in the area.
