Puffin and Scarriff Island trip on 23rd July
A very rare opportunity has arisen for you to join a private trip out to two islands which have not yet been claimed as climbed by any members of the MountainViews community. These are Puffin Island near Portmagee, and Scarriff Island - both off the Iveragh Peninsula in Kerry. We have hired an inflatable rib to spend the day taking us to both islands with a rare opportunity to land and climb them. There are 5 places available at Ä75 per head. The trip is on Saturday 23rd July, departing Portmagee at 9am. If the weather is too dangerous we donít go and we donít pay. But if it is just typical rainy/choppy conditions we are committed to sailing and paying.

To book your place in the MountainViews history books, and for the chance to take part in a bit of modern day pioneering send a message to me via the MountainViews messaging service. Itís strictly first come first served, and if you book a place you have to come along. (The rest of us donít want to have to fork out the cost of your place!).

You will be joining MountainViews members jackill, mcrtchly, kernowclimber, dbloke, Peter Walker, Conor 74 and myself. A total of 4 hours sailing to and from the islands, with about 2 hours spent landed on each. So grab your rain coat and the sea sickness tablets and off we go!

Inishmeane: Not much to do, a tranquil place.

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 ...

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.

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.
