Puffin and Scarriff Island trip 23rd July
On Saturday 23rd July a merry band of MountainViewers will be joined by members of Birdwatch Ireland to visit two Kerry Islands. These are Puffin and Scarriff Islands and both are listed on MountainViews as summits due to their prominence (both over 150 metres). Neither island has been claimed as climbed by any MountainViews members, so this specially arranged trip is a very rare opportunity to visit the islands and explore them. There are no scheduled sailings available to visit and land on these islands, so this really is a rare opportunity to make the pioneering journey out to climb these hills.

There are 3 places available at Ä75 per head. The trip is on Saturday 23rd July, departing Portmagee, Kerry at 9am. If the weather is too dangerous we donít go and we donít pay. But if it is just typical rainy/cloudy 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, email me at wicklore@gmail.com. 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!).
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!

Similar to the other contributors, this is not a single summit day out. I did it after Colly. It's an hour or so with a coffee break. Start at the Ballaghasheen pass (spectacular drive in & out) a...
