Climbed Bloody Foreland from the car park mentioned by Harry Goodman, followed the main road for about 250 metres east round a bend, till a minor road. Follow this minor road past several houses, some not marked on my map, to the gate at roughly 822323 starC. A word of warning, once through this gate watch out!, for lurking near by is the fierce Headless Dog of Cnoc Fola. I kid you not. I had to look twice incase my eyes where deceiving me, but no, there it was lurking behind the road gritter. And yes you did read that right too, there is an old road gritter up on breeze blocks by the track.

From the gate follow a bog track uphill to point 217 and then easily up hill to the summit of Bloody Foreland. Descent is by the way of ascent and you better have kept half a biscuit for the dog! Linkback:
