... the other direction we can clearly see today's goal...Newport Sands...and a good deal further along tomorrow's route. Now we make our way back down the Head, passing Needle Rock and arriving at the picturesque village of Cwm-y-Eglwys in time for a late lunch. We stop to examine the remains of a ruined church and half a graveyard - the rest was swallowed up by the sea during a terrible storm in 1859. More of the graveyard was lost in 1979. There are some gorgeous ...

... French surrendered. Leaving the monument, we drop down into Cwm Fellin which offers some shade in its leafy valley. We cross a bubbling stream and then we are puffing our way back up the other side. This is to be the start of another energetic couple of hours of steep descents and ascents as we negotiate the many inlets. Up ahead the sound of strimmers - the National Trust are busy cutting the undergrowth down for us walkers. We thank them kindly ...

... the corner I am high above the coastline with its series of inaccessible little bays with jagged cliffs and home to seal colonies - there are quite a lot of young seal pups around at the moment. Another steep walk down on slippery shale and I arrive at Abercastle, a long narrow harbour inlet. Ian has just arrived on the bus and is waiting for me at the harbour wall. We climb the cliff path and take a short detour ...

... chamber. We also have fine views back towards Ramsey Sound. The Bishops and Clerks, a dangerous group of rocks for sailors, can be seen out to sea. The path here is somewhat vague meandering amongst heather and gorse but we keep the sea on our left and that seems to work. Up ahead, Periberry, a rocky mound with a steep path upwards. We climb up and over its shoulder. The puffing and panting is rewarding with spectacular views of the coastline ...
