At a pill box, the path drops steeply down to the beach.

After 550 metres, continue SW along a narrow footpath. Ignore the wider tracks.
After 280 metres look for the earth banks of a reservoir, right.

This path is very narrow and wiggles between gorse and heather bushes.
The narrow path crosses several wider routes.
