From Brown’s Bay Beach follow the promenade along to the right and up the stoney path towards Skernaghan Point. This path then gives way to a well-worn grassy track which can be muddy in places. Follow the coastline either at sea level or from the vantage of the field at the top. The land is owned by The National Trust. The only indication that you have finished the walk is a fenceline and there is no signage or any other instruction. From here retrace your steps back to the start.
