Faced with stone from Sneem, facing down to Derrynane and Kenmare Bay, and facing up to Dark Sky Reserve stars and nighttime galaxies via a diamond-shaped feature window, all to a musical backdrop of bass notes heard through open doors from an Art Deco baby grand piano once owned by booming-voiced English actor Brian Blessed... truly, there’s a lot going on to engage the senses at Arcadia.

WE continue on the L4911, crossing scenic Cappul Bridge at the head of Ardgroom Harbour. We are immediately in wild country, Tooreennamna and Tooth mountains behind us and the Iveragh mountains across Kenmare River, ahead. After 0.5km, we pass an unpaved roadway going left, with a yellow Beara Way waymark. We could make the nearby parking space our trailhead, shortening the walk by 2km.

WE have parked opposite the old Post Office, marked on the OS map. Before setting off, we should certainly retrace our steps to the Blackwater Bridge — we will be re-crossing it on our return, but viewing it before we start will make us aware, when we see the Blackwater River upstream, of how romantic and wild it is in this gorge.
