We join the Dingle Way from the car park at 90 meters above sea level. The sea is a constant on our left hand side as we follow the marked trail. We leave Brandon Creek behind us and the remains of the promontory fort of “An Dún Rua”. The fort once stood 12-15 feet high and the same in depth stretching across the headland between the two creeks. As we continue uphill Mt. Brandon looms high above us to the right and Más an Tiompáin to our left. 

At the Ogham Stone we veer right to follow the track along the ridge which will eventually lead us to the peak of Mount Brandon by Piaras Mór and Coimín na gCnámh. We will descend along the Cosán na Naomh route to the carpark in Baile Breac at 400m.

Car share will be required.
