From the Castletown/Clones area the walk north to Kilmichael is reasonably interesting being mostly on paths and beaches. There are a series of small bays framed by rocky spurs.At around T2558 6630 there is the WW2 Look Out Post, number 10. This witnessed many an event including aircraft involved in various attacks on places in Ireland, including one on Dublin on 30/31 May 1941. The area from Kilmichael north along the coast, which is mostly in Wicklow, has no obvious tracks so I had to go inland and walk along the road.
