Rarely Visited Heathland Overlooking Dingle Bay
Short Summary created by ciarraioch  18 Aug 2014
Take the signposted 'Cinn Ard' road to the south on the straight stretch between Dingle and Lispole. Walk starts at V 49382 98725 A, at the end of the cul-de-sac through a small gate into an overgrown grotto and from there onto the hillside. Continue more or less south. then swinging left onto the ridge to gain the first of two tops of equal height (per OSI map). The trig point is on the eastern top. Excellent views onto Bull's Head (Ceann an Daimh - literally 'Ox's Head' as Gaelainn) and Dingle Bay. Descend from the summit onto Ceann an Daimh itself, passing a waterfall onto a cliff encircled beach, but be careful - some of the sheep paths are quite precipitous. Return to starting point bypassing the summit on return. The picture shows the hill from Kells Mountain across Dingle Bay. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1214/comment/15458/
