This is a really lovely walk from the either side of the headland, around the head, through the scenic reserve. It would not be considered a taxing walk and can easily be done in walking shoes rather than boots. When we did this walk, it was sun screen that was required!
There is ample parking both at the eastern end at Fyffe Quay road and at the western by South Bay. This being a linear walk, which can be started at either end, you may need transport at one end or the other, otherwise retrace your steps!
The views out over the cliffs are stunning. Towards the western end you can still see down into the shallow water at the marks made by the keels of the old whaling ships where they were hauled up on the beaches. From the heights, towards the western end, you are looking down on the old whaling villages.
(Due to the dates and times on the Satmap GPS still being set to Irish time, the start and end date and times look a little odd!).

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 0h 52m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
