Harry Goodman on Cnoc an Iolair (Mullach Thiar), 2009

We took the ferry from Burtonport across to Arranmore for a day's walking on the Island. Initially we went NNW to Bellachreesh Bay before heading up over the moor to the rim of cliffs above Torneady Point. Along this cliff edge, which can be followed around to the lighthouse at Rinrawos Pt, are fine views of sea stacks. From trhe lighthouse we followed a road SE before branching off on a track S past L. Nameena and on to Cluidaniller and a trig. pillar at 226m. From here it was a short walk across past L.Namuck to Pt 227 (one metre higher!! )the highest point on the island. While unnamed on the map MV have given it the name Cluidaniller West Top. While you would not go out of your way to seek out such a modest hill the walk on Arranmore gives great purpose in doing so. Views across W to the mainland give a fine perspective of the Derryveigh Mountains. When I was there I obtained a local map which names Pt 227 (Cluidaniller West Top) as Croc na Naomh ( Hill of the Saints). From here we followed the rough track SW through Gortgarra to meet the road going NW and followed it back to the Harbour where we had started the walk.
