The Beara and Sheep's Head Peninsulas, in the southwest of Ireland, are both unspoilt and hold some of Ireland's most beautiful scenery. These routes range from short hikes to longer treks, coastal and inland, something to suit everyone's interest. Stroll the woodland and mountain trails of Gougane Barra or take on Hungry Hill for a more challenging hillwalk, with lots more in between. There is no better way to explore this landscape than on foot. * For a complete list of walking guides available from The Collins Press, see www.collinspress.ie
