Handy High Point
by TippHiker  1 Mar 2023
I parked at Keeffe's Wood as per Fergalh's post. Parking for three or four cars without blocking the barrier. It's a small wood but seems very popular with dog walkers and young children. I followed the fairy trail to the left until I came to a gap in the ditch and crossed over into a field. There's an electric fence but it's low enough to step over and I don't think it was switched on. Walked to the right along the perimeter and came to a junction of four fields. Crossed a newly ploughed field up to the high point. Nice views of the bay on the way up and down. A handy point - took me twenty minutes.
