TUESDAY 12 JUNE - Annascaul to Dingle(continued)

The view towards Macgillycuddy's Reeks as we leave Minard.
This fine fellow took a shine to us as we passed his paddock, near Lios Poil (Lispole).
A mix of lanes and tracks as we cross from Lispole to Dingle.
Although the paths are well marked, some way markers are hidden by the undergrowth. The stile was a clue.....
The vista looking back towards the ground covered this morning.
As the guidebook indicates, it's a long straight road to Dingle where we rested at the Alpine Guesthouse.

WEDNESDAY 13 JUNE - Dingle to Dunquin, 12.5 miles/20 kms, ascent +370m

A hard day lay ahead on our road to Dunquin via Ventry and Slea Head. Storm Hector was to make for a challenging days walk.
The view of Ventry Bay from the village.
A brief rest on the pretty village green before onward through the rain to the beach,
"Sea Horses" - from here, Storm Hector hit us full force and we missed the splendid views around Slea Head. Thankfully, our host at An Portan Guesthouse in Dunquin had the heating on in the rooms to help us dry out!

THURSDAY 14 JUNE - Dunquin to Feohanagh/Cuas, 15.5 miles/25 kms, +100m

Leaving Dunquin, the mist cleared to give a view of the Blaskets.
Fine weather as we moved across Clogher Head
A stop for refreshments and a chance to shop at the Louis Mulcahy pottery complex.
Wine Strand, a view of the walk ahead, an empty beach and the sun overhead.
A brief stop for liquid intake before the beach walk.
Another bridge so another group shot before the next stage, a cliff top walk to Feohanagh / Cuas
The path from the beach takes the ramblers on a gentle climb past coastal pastures, towards the cliff section.
This section provided easy walking on grassy tracks, along the cliff tops, similar to our own Causeway Coastal path.
From Feohanagh to Cuas, the path followed country lanes and a short riverside section, before reaching our accommodation at the An Bothar Guesthouse.
