For a moderate trail run with the reward of iconic views, head to Valentia Island and do the Bray Head Loop Walk. This is a very scenic run to Bray Head and along the coastline at the west end of Valentia Island, including a steady climb to the Bray Head Watchtower with spectacular views of the Skellig Islands. It’s also the set location for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Access the route from the car park, just over the bridge from Portmagee.
