The 12 participants enjoyed excellent weather with blue skies and 360⁰ degree crystal-clear visibility. The walk is very well waymarked and combines track, cross country and road. Our lunch stop on Esk ridge provided a grandstand view of Bantry Bay and Whiddy Island while to our backs we could see the meandering track down below that would take us back to the main road. We had a little bit of steep ground to contend with on the descent near the tunnel but everyone coped very well and before long we were on ‘terra firma’ again and on the way back to our cars. A beautiful day in excellent company!
