This island is higher and more rugged than its neighbour, Inishvickillane. Tomás Ó Criomhthain records in An t-Oileánach (The Islandman) how the well-known melody Port na bPúcaí magically came to one of the Daly family living on Inishnabro. This story in turn inspired Seamus Heaney's poem The Given Note.   Inis na Bró is the 1424th highest place in Ireland. Inis na Bró is the second most southerly summit in the Dingle West area. It's also the third most westerly summit in .

Another view of Inis na Brò

Simply in the interest in expanding our knowledge, I'm attaching another picture of Inis na Brò. This one shows the eastern side of the island, and it is obvious that this is much more gently sloped than the fierce western side. Even so, the gentle slopes seem to end at a sheer drop all the way around, and I'd reckon this is a 15-20 foot drop at the lowest section about half way up the island.

Croaghmore is visible top right, with Inishtooskert faintly visible top left. Apologies for the lack of clarity, but the photo was taken through the perspex window of the helicopter that brought me to An Tiaracht. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1043/comment/6630/
