Cladagh Glen Scout CentreThe site is situated along a wooded glen with the camping area adjacent to the river. Toilet and shower facilities (including those for the disabled) are available in the main building. This building consists of two dormitories, a main hall, a fully fitted kitchen and a drying room. The site has a campfire circle and a bar-b-que area and firewood is available on site.
Hill walking, caving, rock climbing, canoeing and water activities are available at the Gortatole W.E.L.B. centre, which is approximately two miles away. Approximately three miles away is the village of Florencecourt, where the nearest public transport can be found.
The Glen takes its name from the Cladagh river formed in the depths of the Marble Arch Caves, carving its way through the limestone rock of the Marlbank and leaving a deep scar in which there are remnants of Irelands ancient woodland.
Most of the route follows the course of Cladagh upstream, at times no more than a bubbling brook, but after a heavy rain becomes a brown torrent plunging down the glen. An attractive walk year round, and even more so in the winter months when the river has a good flow and rock formations are visible through leafless trees. Gentle gradients, a few steep parts and steps
