Downing Point


At the east of Bathing House Wood, at the edge of the cliff, is a set of stone steps leading up to the rocky ridge at the south edge of the wood which then continues to the east to become Downing Point.

The thin soil and exposure to sea winds means that this area is home to many drought tolerant flowers and is the best area in all of Dalgety Bay for these species.  This makes it a very attractive place to walk in spring and summer, but walkers need to tread carefully to avoid damage to this fragile ecosystem.

Going west, away from the point, are longer grasses and more flowers and this area has a thriving colony of Meadow Brown butterflies.
