(16) Dunmore East (Dún Mór), X689997 to Portally Cove.

There is a path that takes you along the cliff tops from Dunmore East over to Portally Cove (there is no parking at this end). The path is decorated by Gorse at the start but soon opens out onto the exposed cliff top. The field banks are covered in Rock Sea-spurrey and Thrift and to a lesser extent Sea Campion and Wild Thyme. There are large areas of Bell Heather. The grassy cliffs in places become white with the flowers of Sea Carrot during the summer. The path drops steeply down into Portally Cove. By the stream crossing the beach is a patch of the hybrid between Common and Sea Couch and on the cliffs Sea Beet is seen. At the top of the beach Rumex crispus subspecies littoreus occurs and at low tide Sea Spleenwort can be reached on the rocks. This can be made into a circular walk if the road is taken back to Dunmore East.
