A short walk down to cross the river at V499978 and we then head for the promontory fort of Ceann an Daimh ( Bull`s Head) where we will see the remains of an ancient settlement.A gradual climb of another 100m approx will bring us to “Sea Hill” @ 218m.From here we follow a more direct line back to the river crossing and then our original route back to the cars.
