COMMENTS for Bray Head 1 of 1
Coastal Cowtown
Short Summary created by Peter Walker,  13 Jun 2012
Bray Head forms the western end of Valencia Island off the Iveragh coast, and in common with many other tops hereabouts has some excellent coastal views.

Start from 350737 A where there is room for a number of cars. Walk WSW up an obvious track to reach a conspicuous signal tower directly over the ocean: from here turn right and follow the impressive cliff edge up to the summit. Descent can be either by the same route or by a more direct course heading ESE to regain the track.

It should be noted that there are generally a lot of cattle roaming loose in this area, which needs considering if you are uneasy in their company. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1010/comment/5769/
