ballyhornan county down mate, it's east of Downpatrick, if you have ever been to ardglass it's north of there on the A2, great part of the world, but I'm biased! Lol

Don't much about the area, but a sea side bivvy would be great crack.

Nice to see some spots I'm not familiar with, there are lots of them.  That must form part of the Lecale Way?  Another one for the 'to do' list.

. Yes it's on the lecale way, killard is also worth a visit, some lovely wild flowers and lots of wildlife!

This looks awesome. What would we be like for camping around there, looks like there's some isolation?
