The trailhead for 2nd half of this Pilgrim Path is Carriganass Castle, Kealkill; there is a car park nearby. It begins on roadway, with connecting off-road sections that were still very boggy and slippery after the bad winter. Likewise the higher ground on the approach to Gougane Barra, and especially the descent. However, the scenery again made it all worthwhile. A hike to be reserved for the drier months of the year.
