Ramparts 3

Some of the natural and built heritage along your walk includes the beautiful blue and orange kingfisher, the moorhen and her chicks swimming quietly on the canal, the shy otter which has become rare in much of Ireland and extinct in many European countries (he can usually be seen during early morning or late afternoon); and the heron with its elegant long neck standing at the water's edge for hours hunting fish. You will see the canal locks of the once busy Boyne Navigation, Babe's Bridge (the oldest bridge on the river) and pass close to the ruins of the eerie Dunmoe Castle and Ardmulchan Church then finishing up at Navan town before you retrace your steps back to Stackallen Bridge
