Map: OS Discovery series sheet no. 16

Start/Finish: Trawgar, 3km NW of Grange village and N15.

Time: 7km, about 1.5 to 2 hours

Suitability: easy, care needed on bare limestone, best enjoyed at low tide

When you arrive at Streedagh, you’ll find three kilometres of golden sand, perfect for surfing, strolls or a family picnic. Nearby at Atlantic Sheepdogs, you’ll meet some of the smartest dogs in the world!

Against the beautiful backdrop of Sligo’s Atlantic coastline, this has to be one the most amazing beach walks we’ve been on with Baxter. It boasts a wealth of interest, including a wedge tomb, fossils, tropical sea limestone, the Armada, a “Butter Boat”, surfing and spectacular views of Ben Bulben, Slieve League and Inishmurray.

The tide was out the day we were there, allowing us to walk the full length of the sandy beach.
