Ballyhornan

Ballyhornan Ballyhornan Coastal Path walk from Ballyhornan to Ardglass or vice versa on 10th November was a great success with many members walking this hidden gem of a route for the first time. It was, as we have come to expect on Thursdays, a glorious day - warm, dry and sunny with lots to see.

We walked past Guns Island, used during the summer for grazing cattle which can walk across at low tide - not recommended for walkers! A 7m high obilisk, visible in the photographs, is located at the southern end of the island.


Ballyhornan Some couldn't resist the opportunity to buy at nice cup of tea in Ardglass at the start and end of the walk. Wild mushrooms were available for the picking close to Saint Patrick's Well.

And as if that wasn't enough for one day, the cherry on the top was that we were able to buy wonderful fresh fish in the local hardware shop, thoughtfully located opposite the loos for the public's convenience. Best to order at the start of the walk to avoid dissapointment.

Truly, a day to bring a smile to the face of our happy walkers!
