lunch spot
Having had a sandwich and water or coffee in many a sheltered spot on the Wicklow and Mourne Mountains, with the wind howling through the heather, rain beating against my waterproofs, the vistas hidden in the clouds..... Well, this photo is the Aletsch Glacier, (you can see the crevasses in lower left) and after an hour's hike over the snow and ice, I found a good spot to put down my fleece, knelt in the snow and had this for a view, I wondered at the time why my usual ham salad sandwich and fruit juice tasted so well up here at 3454 metres, but it must have been the view! Watching the kites fly overhead, and the odd walker, I did find it difficult to tear myself away. A bit different to the Mournes and Wicklows but accessible to any regular hill walker! photo taken 11th june '05

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Inishsirrer: The only building that is not a ruin.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.
