Walking World Ireland Route
by davidhorkan  11 Sep 2012
On Sat 3rd Oct 2009 a group of us walked Killelan.Getting there is easy. In mid town Cahersiveen take the road for White Strand. Plenty of parking there.You walk back along this road , going N & then sharp left & W . Go out to the tip of Doulus Head on well marked sheep tracks & dont miss the sea stacks at Illaunanesk.. Turn here & follow tracks up Killelan.

We are deeply indebted to Tom Hutton who had just published a great article on this walk in the Oct/Nov issue of Walking World Ireland no 93. The views from the top of Killelan 267 m are brilliant including Skelligs & Dingle Bay. Continue on via the fences & stone walls that are very useful physical guide references here. This area is subject to mist& light rain & we were using compass & Map (OS 83 ).Next stop was Coonchrome Harbour. You are on tarmac all the way back to White Strand. There are two renovated forts here , really worth a diversion , especially the Cahergal one. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/979/comment/4222/
