Well worth a visit
by paulocon  10 Jan 2011
Beg is a handy wee dander from the Brandy Pad. For me, it was a stop off point before heading up the punishing incline for Cove. First time seeing the very impressive coachroad abd I have to say I felt uneasy just looking down into it - fair play to all those who have scrambled up it. Well worth a visit.
