Was upset today while enjoying a lovely walk round Killyfole to see a young man throwing stones at the wild ducks he was walking with a young teenage girl.Ispoke to him regarding his actions he seemed indifferent and said so what. It is such a shame to see people abusing this wonderful amenity.

The Walk around Killyfole Lough continues to rise in popularity and is suitable for walkers of all capabilities with the boardwalk and gravel paths. The wildlife you see on route is fantastic and look out for the beautiful Black Swan. Guest Accomodation is available in our self catering Apartment for up to 5 guests at www.theashes@killyfole.com

Just updating my comments from a year ago. The Killyfole Lough Shore path continues to be very popular with locals and visitors. Guest in my B&B comment on how lucky I am to live right beside the Lough with my own access to the pathway. We are happy to have visitors to stay and if interested my details are on www.leanderlodge.com

As a local i love this exquisite walk, with its tranquil waters, wooded Glen, Bird hide, Jetties- large and small. It is well kept and a pleasure for young and old at all times of year. Self catering available overlooking at fermanaghselfcatering.co.uk

We did this walk while staying down in Enniskillen in our caravan.

Beautiful walk. Well deserves its 'Quality Short Walk' tag. Flat, well maintained, suitable for prams / wheelchairs / children. We took our dogs and where pleased to see that other dog owners also choose to clean up after their dogs - very clean.

Local folk obviously take pride in this walk and there is a nice bird watching hut at the lough and enough seats to enjoy a picnic on a nice day.

I live next to the lough in Leander Lodge which is a newly opened B&B. It really is a beautiful location and I'm very fortunate to live here. The path is used by a great number of people, not only locals but people travel from quite a distance to enjoy the pleasure of a peaceful stroll.
