The gentle incline of this walk takes the route of an old limestone railway track to the now disused Gortin Quarry. Interpretation panels along the way illustrate the history. It ends at Cranny Waterfall where the moist air is good for plants and insects.

Route

From Carnlough (with its beautiful Carnlough Beach), take the steps going uphill beside the 'Harbour Lights' building. This takes you around to the right and across a bridge over the main road. This path soon takes you past a car park and gradually up to Gortin Quarry where there are seats and viewpoints. Follow the path left over to Cranny Falls. Come back the same way.
