WE WILL BE LEAVING POINT B AT 10AM SHARP TO GET TO POINT A

8 Miles approx.

A mixture of beach, road and grassy track. The walk on the beach at Benone involves crossing over 3 small streams.  These come from Downhill cliffs and near the sea they dissipate and should be easily crossed.  However if there’s has been recent heavy rain/or tide is not as low as expected, this might be difficult.  I suggest we will bring a small towel and be prepared for a paddle!
