This is the most westerly of the Blasket Islands. Its profile is remarkably similar to that of Skellig Michael. Its only human inhabitants were the lighthouse-keepers and their families. As the lighthouse was on the side facing the Atlantic, the view only reinforced their isolation. A natural rock-arch connects the two parts of the island.   An Tiaracht is the 1262th highest summit in Ireland. An Tiaracht is the most westerly summit in the Dingle West area. It's also the most westerly summit in .

This photo, taken through the window of the helicoptor, shows the rugged cliffs and rocks of An Tiaracht being lashed by the violent sea. It is easy to see how a landing by boat would be impossible.

Although many Mountainviews summits have more 'isolation' in terms of distance to the next hill, surely Simon3 is right when he suggests that this lonely, uninhabited rock, 12 kms off the coast of Kerry is the real most isolated summit on MV?
