The highest point on the island is known as Cró na Snáthaide, 'eye of the needle', and was visited by pilgrims who kissed a cross-inscribed slab overhanging the abyss. This fell into the sea at some time during the 19th century. As access to the summit is now forbidden to protect the site, a visit to the monastery will count as an ascent of this peak.   Sceilg Mhichíl is the 1355th highest summit in Ireland. Sceilg Mhichíl is the most southerly summit and also the most westerly in the Iveragh NW area.
