After a good look at Carnan Nan Long, we went back along the minor road taking the road west when it arrived. The track to Baleshare beach is signposted, plenty room to park. This is a popular place for campers and surfers but not on this day. They must have known the weather was on the turn with the temperature beginning to drop and the wind beginning to pick up.

We walked south down the beach heading towards a green mound. Sadly there isn't much to see as the excavations appear to have been back filled. Still worth the effort for the views.

A look at the Baleshare Community Excavations, in the links, shows the huge amount of work that goes has gone here. Fantastic information, diagrams and photos included.
