Hike the Bluestack Way with confidence by using the HiiKER toolkit to help you before your hike and during your hike with the HiiKER app.

We did the section from Donegal town to Glenties as we only had 2 days. Carried our tent, food and water with us. Camped at approximately mile 17 in a farmers field. We ran into him the next morning and he was happy we used his field and I imagine most farmers up there would be the same. Water taps or bottled sources are minimal/non existent but lots of running streams/rivers and we asked a guy in his front garden to fill a bottle and he was happy to do so. A good portion of trail is on roads which are really quiet and very enjoyable. Try to avoid the route shown on this app at mile ~18 but rather the alt route option. We didn’t and this section was largely on a busy road! We met no one actually walking the Bluestacks way and not many locals had heard of it which makes it very cool. Brilliant weekend
