Killard Point , Ballyhornan, County Down
Walk out through orchid-studded pastures to reach this remote headland with sandy inlets and skylarks. Swim in crystal water with starfish and closes. You are on the Lecale Way, a little-known coastal roadway that retraces the remote western shore of County Down. Continue on to the south to find an island isthmus and a multitude of deep ducts known as zawns or geos. Follow the lane north from Ballyhornan and after a mile follow the line on the right by the farm, leading up to a parking area on the headland.
