The Western Way ( Galway ) is one of the shortest ways in the country, however this is well compensated for in the beauty of the scenery along the walk. This route starts as Oughterard and follows the shore of Lough Corrib to Maam. From Maam, it finds a low level way through the great quartzite ranges of the Maum Turks and the Twelve Bens, before descending to the deep, narrow valley of the Killary Harbour and the junction with the Mayo Western Way near Leenaum.

lough-corrib.jpg The total distance of the way is 31 miles taking in Oughterard, Maam, Maumeen, Toorenacoona and Leenaun. The longest stage is that between Maumeen and Toorenacoona a distance of 14 miles. Maumeen is the highest point at 850 ft.
