As you will immediately see from the track this was an exploration of what is possible thoroughly exploring various dead ends. Although there is some information about the route on the web, there are also suggestions that parts of it are unavailable for one reason or another. This should be a lot easier since it is an obvious recreational area on public land as far as I know.The start is in a car park adjacent to but not part of a golf course. From the car park there is a path across the golf course. There is a large sign saying the the route is unsafe because of falling debris, however most users of this website accustomed to hillwalking would not find much difficulty in the route and the 2 or 3 places of slightly damaged path. Of much greater concern would be the risk from flying golfballs. Keep an eye out for golfers playing in your direction. Consider stopping when there is a risk of being struck. The actual head has a curious narrow access road and a few functional looking buildings. Returning there is an encouraging sign somewhat at odds with the various other signs pointing out the way back via Brides Head. Afficionados of tv adaptations of novels will of course recognise the comic potential recommending going back this way as Brides Head Revisited.

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 1h 31m + 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.
