Starting from one of the numerous small roads leading north from the R561, this route goes up the rocky southern spur of Castle Hill. As you ascend a wider and wider view opens out to the south over Dingle Bay. The OSi map shows the public road well here.
We asked for permission and parked at around Q7609 0388, though I think if you keep out of the way that permission is not strictly necessary. The land being crossed is some sort of commonage. There is a possibility that cattle will be grazing with the risks that this can bring. There are also sheep so this is not a route recommended for dogs.
