A fine circuit at the far north of the Mount Brandon massif.

From Brandon Point at the end of Brandon Bay, climb up along the cliffs of the northern flanks of the Mount Brandon massif, round to the bay of Sauce Creek to the west. Then circle the hill above and strike south to join the Dingle Way (Day 6). Walk eastwards, back down to near Brandon village. A lane takes you back to Brandon Point.

Note – no way marked paths until you reach the Dingle Way.

See our Dingle Peninsula page for more general and practical information and photos.
