Why Scarriff is so named is something of a mystery, as it is quite some distance from the mainland in deep water. One possible solution is to interpret the name as Ir. garbh, 'rough', with a prosthetic s-, as happens with many other words, such as teach and creag.   Scarriff Island is the 1268th highest summit in Ireland. Scarriff Island is the most southerly summit and also the most westerly in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Des O'Shea operates a RIB from Wave Crest campsite, Caherdaniel ,www.ribtrips.ie and took me to Deanish first then on to Scarriff which has a natural harbour near the NE corner . Presumably the Goats are keeping the vegetation in check so easier going than Deanish. Mass is held every year in the ruined house on the island ,this year 100 attented !
