Time: 30 mins

Start & Finish: From Mullagh village,take the Virginia Road (R194). Parking is available at the amenity area beside Mullagh Lake. Mullagh Lake was formed by huge glaciers during the last Ice Age as was much of the landscape in this part of County Cavan. The lake is now home to a wide range of waterbirds, including winter visitors from as far
away as Iceland and Siberia making this an ideal spot to stop for a picnic either before or after your walk.
After leaving the car park, walk along the main road towards Virginia for approximately 300 metres.There is a sign on the right hand side pointing to a hill walk.The path is good but steep and has a beautiful viewing point
three-quarter of the way up.There are several picnic benches from where there are panoramic views across the gentle drumlin landscapes of Counties Cavan and Monaghan. Return to the car park along the same route, taking care when crossing the main Virginia Road.
