…For research purposes we continued on. This meant lifting the buggy over the barrier. We then followed the signs on the road (no path and quite unsafe) which led us back into the woods on the opposite side of the road. The entrance here for wheel users was totally non-existent so Aideen was soaring over another fence before she knew it. From here the path was really steep, a great workout but hard going. It was all worth it but this section is not accessible as was advised on the information board.

We finally arrived back at the car park after 45 minutes including stops for photos. Yet again there was no access for the buggy so it was one more lift for Aideen. Thankfully there was two of us.

Colligan Woods are definitely worth a visit but really only one half of the walk is wheel-friendly.
