This forest fringes Luce Bay, an impressive sweep of shore where bombers practised during World War 2. Part of the bay is still a firing range, but there’s a peaceful path through the trees to the wonderfully-named Ringdoo Point. The route is not waymarked, but the main forest track is easy to follow.
The dunes, sandbanks and sea bed in the bay are a wild place, rich in wildlife and protected as a Special Area of Conservation. Bring your binoculars to watch for seabirds, especially in autumn and winter.
The Luce Bay and Sands leaflet will tell you more about this wild place.
