Coastal path

The Bloody Bridge Coastal Path is important for the access it affords visitors to an otherwise generally inaccessible coastline. Have a look at the cliffs around Bloody Bridge as they provide nesting grounds for fulmars, black guillemots and herring gulls. Linnets and Stonechats can be seen among the gorse, while out to sea divers, auks, terns, gannets and cormorants may be spotted. The area's dry heath habitat of western gorse and bell heather is recognised as being of European importance. Interesting rock formations can be seen along this trail.


Excellent views can be had across Dundrum Bay and, on a clear day, to the Isle of Man.
