Please take extra care if you have dogs. After waypoint 3 you will find all sorts of cattle grazing, including cows and very big bulls, we were walking on a very narrow dune path and were suddenly approached by a rather intimidating bull, the only option was to return back for safety and wait until the animal moved on. The walk is also littered with bridal paths and we saw more than 3 dozen horses, so again take care. All in all it turned out a good walk, but I would not return with my small terrier, who's not a particularly bad barker and doesn't seem to mind grazing animals.

A lovely walk but did find it hard interpreting our way towards the trees on the skyline. Also, the stepping stones whilst fun can be easily slipped on!! As long as your dogs can negotiate the stepping stones it is a great walk for them. Mostly off the lead although small road sections. Our dogs needed help over the stone stiles.

Walk is very nice, however We think this was the most littered beach we have ever been on. Dog owners beware of glass and rubbish on beach. Shame on you wales council, look at cornwall and scotland clean and rubbish free.

Before returning to Ogmore Castle via the suspension brige and stepping stones a welcome cup of tea and home-made cake can be obtained at Holly Cottage in Merthyr Mawr. Holly Cottage is a short walk from the church keeping the Church on your left and branching right where the road follows a sharp left bend.
